Website For People Looking At A New Lifestyle

New Website For People Looking At A New Lifestyle Or Career

If you are an enterprising person and the idea of being your own boss is appealing, you should visit soon. As the first stop for people considering a new career or a change in lifestyle, this website offers information on dairying lifestyles and careers for mature people right through to school leavers, university and technical institute graduates.

As part of a nationwide promotional programme aimed at raising the profile of dairy farming in New Zealand, is an information portal that gives an overview of New Zealand's dairy industry, an insight into dairying values, and a vast array of links to the dairy industry's main companies, advocacy bodies, research organisations, and recruitment and training providers.

As New Zealand's largest and fastest growing industry, dairying is a significant employer and contributor to the New Zealand economy and more people are making the transition from town to country life to take up a range of roles from herd managers to sharemilkers and farm owners. The 'Dairying Lifestyles' web pages delve into the lives of the recently 'converted' as well as those who have been in the business for many years.

The website is also a useful resource for dairy farmers and those already in the industry with updated news and information. People can view different features of the "Let's Talk Dairying" promotional programme such as the current television advertisements, billboard displays and brochures.
