Acto Agriculture NZ Ltd is a privately owned family business and has been operating since 1972 as a manufacturer, importer, exporter and wholesaler of agricultural products. We are the proud New Zealand home of Lister Shearing & Clipping Equipment.We mainly specialise in "fibre removal equipment" including sheep shearing, horse, cattle, deer, alpaca & dog clipping equipment & general farm and related accessories.
In our first 26 years of business, we manufactured Lister Shearing and Dagging machines and grinders for New Zealand and Australia which were sold through the then named Lister Petter. In 1985 we also purchased HC Zank Shearing Supplies which was a manufacturer of shearer's accessories and predominantly a mail order company, and ran our 2 companies side by side with Acto Engineering as the engineering arm and the renamed NZ Shearing Supplies. Since then we have expanded our manufacturing and distribution operation and now function under the one umbrella as Acto Agriculture NZ
