No Day is a Bad one on the Farm – Too busy to Think About it really

Peter Davie is into milk. Stay with me on this one.

Farm use of lubricants makes a difference

In the early ’50s, Peter Davie’s grandfather came across a piece of property in Delta, British Columbia, where the family runs its dairy farm to this day. Solely dairy since the ’60s, the Davie Farm is home to purebred Holstein cows.

Holstein cows are prized for their high production. The farm herd is 100 percent born and raised onsite and produces about 80 pounds of milk per cow per day. That’s a lot of cartons of milk.

With 240 acres to manage, there is a lot of mechanical equipment that needs maintenance. That means regular oil changes and greasing on the farm’s 12 tractors.

Using conventional oil, Davie’s tractors needed oil changes every 200 hours. Switching to AMSOIL products has extended the service interval to 800 hours.

Not only that, but AMSOIL products have helped keep Davie’s 1986 Ford TW-35 tractor running strong. Watch his story now.
