Kinder. Easier. Safer. Faster.

Designed by a Vet • Chosen by Farmers
• Preferred by Calves

Based in the heart of New Zealand, the beloved country where cattle out number people, and sheep even more so, is our energetic and creative team.

The best start = optimum health and productivity for life.  Through our hands-on experience we know how to achieve this best start for your animals and we are here to help farmers and vets achieve top results in a kinder, easier, safer and easier manner, through better equipment.

Why Antahi?  An = animal and Tahi = first in Maori.   If you look after your animals, they will look after you.  Our products are designed to work with the animal, achieving the lowest stress and the greatest result, which in turn makes a farmers work and life easier.

Our experience in farming, veterinary and agricultural banking means we know how to save a farmer a buck or three and how to maximise returns.  This certainly doesn’t mean a compromise on quality – Antahi products are thoroughly tested by farmers for utmost durability and functionality, and we stand behind them with pride and confidence.

Wherever you are in the world, we want to help you, so please drop us a line with any questions.

We could not have asked for a better launch at the NZ National Fieldays mid June.  With queues for three days and stock selling out, thanks to the last minute hands on deck to fill the product orders and enquiries.  Thanks to all of the farmers we met, endless comments about how grateful people are to have a kinder option, we love to hear that we have helped!  June 18th 2016

Before Antahi escalated into the export company it is now, Mark and Ursula were a large animal Veterinarian and a Farmer/Rural Banker.  By experiencing the problems farmers face, having an itch to problem solve and an appreciation for great design and quality, this led to the creation of the Antahi products now found in appreciative farmers hands all around the world.
