Dairy Industry Awards: Number One In The World

Dairy Industry Awards: Number One In The World

It’s official: the Dairy Industry Awards are number one in the world – international internet site Google proves it.

Key in the words “dairy industry awards” and the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards website comes up first of 1,220,000 sites with that key phrase.

In just three weeks since the website went live, around 400 people have visited the site and more than 100 people have added the site to their “favourites” list – a very good result in a short time says awards management committee chairperson Alison Watters.

“The site has been designed to be easy to navigate and for people to get the information they want. It’s also the simplest way for people to access and download entry forms for the three DIA competitions – the Dairy Trainee of the year, Farm Manager of the Year and Sharemilker of the Year.”

The site has links to other relevant web locations, including those of the Awards’ sponsors: Westpac, Dairy InSight, Fonterra, LIC, Meridian Energy, Ravensdown, Federated Farmers, RD1, Ecolab, Honda and ACC, along with industry partner Dexcel.

Digital Breeze Design, which designed and maintains the website, reports the most popular pages currently are the home page, how to enter and the media release page.

“We’re sure as the regional events swing into action the calendar will also prove popular with a full timeline of regional awards events and field days,’ Mrs Watters says.

“There’s also a useful list of management committee members and regional convenors who are available to answer questions on a national or local basis. Any feedback is always welcome.”
