Rural Electrical Services

Rural Electrical Services

Electrical work in the rural setting must be undertaken by skilled and knowledgeable electricians. In wet outdoor conditions, the risk of electrocution becomes more acute. Other electrical hazards include fire, machinery breakdowns, and injury to people and livestock. Call on Best Electrical to ensure that the work carried out on your farm is carried out by a company which pays fastidious attention to detail and to safety.

We make your farm safer by providing regular maintenance checks on wiring and switching, and checking for cracks and breaks in switch or controller casings. Call on us to replace extension leads with more convenient hard-wired systems. While we are there, we’ll carry out your annual checking and tagging of power appliance and extension leads - now a Health and Safety requirement. Where required, we can shift power points and wiring to keep them out of reach of small children. We can improve your farm safety by installing emergency stop buttons and motor protection on pumps and motors, positioned in such a way that workers can reach them with ease.

New dairy
When installing new equipment in the dairy shed, call on the experts to ensure you have systems which are safe for your cattle and the people working with them. Faulty installation and bonding in the dairy shed can result in stray voltage, which can cause micro shock. Cows experiencing micro shock are known to recoil or become injured when going into or out of the shed. Micro shock can cause milk production to drop by up to 30%.
When working on your new dairy installation, we plan with you to achieve the outcome you have in mind. We quote a fair price for the job – one that allows us to deliver quality without compromising safety, and we commission and test the installation. We are committed to keeping the work space tidy and organised, ensuring your animals are not endangered, and working to agreed time frames (as far as weather and other circumstances beyond our control permit).

Retrofit dairy
Upgrading the dairy shed electrics can contribute to safer operations as well as energy and cost savings. Best Electrical electricians do all they can to keep the shed running, if that is a requirement, using the current set up until the retrofit is ready to go.

Automated backing gates
We install robust and reliable backing gate automation systems, which contribute to ease of milking by controlling the flow of cows and reduce your physical workload. In addition, collecting yards can be cleaned up with the push of a button from the parlour pit. To make milking easier, discuss the options with Best Electrical.

Effluent, water and bore pumps
Best Electrical staff are experienced in the electrical aspects of installing, repairing and maintaining effluent pumps, water pumps and bore pumps. We don’t want to see you without water and are available 24/7, 364 days per year, to look after the electrical side of keeping the pump doing its job.
