ABOUT US

Ultra-Scan was established in 1994 with the introduction of ultrasonic equipment for pregnancy testing in cows.

Our Story

Ultra-Scan has grown over the years by building a strong network of franchisees across New Zealand. While our primary focus is pregnancy scanning of dairy cows using the latest equipment, we also offer a variety of on-farm services, including calf disbudding, de-teating, DNA sampling, and EID calf tagging. In some regions, we also provide specialised deer, goat, and sheep scanning services.

In 2024, we are entering an exciting new chapter with the addition of new owners Glenn Chambers and Bianca Bothma. Their combined expertise and diverse backgrounds make them an exceptional team to lead Ultra-Scan forward.

As a family-owned and operated business based in New Zealand, we take pride in our commitment to supporting the local farming community. We aim to provide exceptional services and innovate to meet the needs of farmers, always striving for excellence and customer satisfaction.

She founded a rapid drug testing manufacturing company in South Africa, supplying schools, businesses, and recovery centres.

After this entrepreneurial success, Bianca moved to New Zealand in 2017, where she managed the day-to-day operations of the country's largest podiatry employer for six years. Her role involved overseeing 26 locations nationwide, including franchise management, demonstrating her exceptional leadership and organisational skills.
