Leslie Bros Ag Contracting Limited was formed in September 2015 by brothers Paul and John Leslie and is based in Linkwater, Marlborough. Leslie Bros Ag Contracting runs a variety of machinery, most of which was purchased with the business, including a John Deere precision maize planter and a Allen triple disc drill. Paul and John run a McHale baler and twin-satellite wrapper, which they use individually due to safety requirements on the large amount of steep country throughout the Marlborough Sounds. Leslie Bros Ag Contracting has a Claas 870 Forage Harvester, it has a six-row maize front on it for harvesting maize. They have heavy discs and a power harrow roller combination plus all the cultivation gear. Leslie Bros Ag Contracting also runs two hay rakes; a Lely Hibicus 915 rake and a Claas 2900 Twin Rotor rake that was purchased from Claas Harvest Centre in Canterbury. Paul and John run four Massey Ferguson tractors, ranging from 120hp to 200hp and have recently purchased a new Claas Arion 650.50 Cmatic tractor. Paul, John and their team travel throughout Marlborough for work and into the Marlborough Sounds, the last 2 seasons they have travelled to Motueka to harvest maize.
