Peach Teat users have often asked if there was an official line of Peach Teats t-shirts for them to wear to proudly show their affection for the brand. We are pleased to announce that peachteatsclothing.com is now online. Check out the first release of designs, printed on top quality T-shirts. We are sure you will find something for even the most discerning of calf-rearers...
We recently noticed this great merchandising display set up in the RD1 store in Eltham, New Zealand, featuring the Peach Teats calf.
Peach Teats Velocity won ‘The Most Surprising Sponsorship Award’ from the Greenwich Flying Squadron in Sydney, Australia at the prize-giving held on the last night of the twilight season on Wednesday 1st April 2015. The brightly adorned yacht has been creating lots of attention everywhere it goes.
Does the bright happy calf on the sail give Peach Teats Velocity an edge in a race? Well, maybe not, but it certainly puts a smile on the faces of many onlookers. And it was first on scratch for the autumn twilight season, and third in its division at the well-attended Sydney Harbour Regatta this year.
Proudly displaying the Peach Teats brand, the yacht Peach Teats Velocity raced in the 10th Anniversary Sydney Harbour Regatta held on March 7th and 8th 2015 and finished third in her division.
Brian Carrick, from the Middle Harbour Yacht Club in Sydney, is the skipper/owner.
Anne Switzer from Medicine Hat, Alberta, sent us this delightful story about her Highland calf Boris:
Thank you for marketing this fabulous product PEACH TEAT. Borus (highland calf) was placed on a coke bottle with a nipple (as many calves before him)... he fought it, like the others, but this time I decided to try something different. I found the PEACH TEAT at our local Co-Op and decided to 'try' this product.
It was like night and day... Borus took to this nipple instantly. Now when show him the bucket he comes running to us.. instead of just standing there (possibly dreading the force of having something so foreign shoved into his mouth).
Borus is a very happy camper now and I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!
A short video showing the 2013 calf rearing season at Rakaia Island Dairies on the South Island of New Zealand. We made this video as a team building and morale boosting exercise for what is often known as an unpleasant job. We hope you enjoy it!
The Peach Teats sign along State Highway 1 is a real NZ landmark. Located between Hunterville and Mangaweka; the sign has been baffling visitors to our fine country for years – and a quick google search leading them to their site and this image of founder Robert McIntyre brainstorming with a peach teat in the bath probably doesn’t help... but Peach Teats have been embraced by rural NZ and it’s an icon not only for the infamous billboard, but an outstanding product. “Calves Love ‘em!”. And so do we.
Which teats are best? The ‘peach peach’ teats in the blue feeder are better than the black ones in the grey feeders. We replaced these the other day, partly because we had pierced them at the start of the year and with the constant sucking, the milk was just pouring out of them. Plus we thought that if we get the older calves to ‘break’ in the new teats, it would be that bit easier for newborns next year! The calves didn’t know what was happening the first morning and they must have spent 15 minutes sucking what normally took less than a minute. These are supposed to prevent gulping and engorging alright but are very hard for newborns. As you can see from the photo below, some of these teats were bitten in half whereas the ‘peach peach’ teats are still fine.
