Waikato dairy farmer Greg Oliver hasn’t had any power on his farm since two o’clock Tuesday morning but local electricians have helped him to keep milking, saved him money and kept his cows happy. Greg says the local sparkies have been brilliant getting hold of a bunch of generators and hooking them up so we can milk. The electricians from Morrinsvilles Silvester Electrical, see the milking finish and then move onto the next farm. Owner Damian Silvester realized Cyclone Gabrielle was coming and hired extra generators to help farmers if their power was down and farmer Greg Oliver says because of the generator he did not have to dump milk like other farmers had to across the country.
