DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum takes science to the regions

DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum takes science to the regions


DairyNZ’s latest research will be showcased at a nationwide series of Farmers’ Forum events during April and May.

The informative and practical seminars will be held in Whangarei, Hawera, Woodville, Invercargill and Greymouth.

DairyNZ chief executive, Dr Tim Mackle, says each year the Farmers’ Forum provides a great opportunity for dairy farmers to see how their levy is invested and to learn about dairy industry research and development work relevant to their region’s farming issues.

“Our Farmers’ Forum has become an annual gathering and every second year we go out to the regions and customise forum topics based on locally relevant issues,” says Tim.

“Farmers tell us they really look forward to the forum each year and gain a lot from attending. We guarantee you’ll go away with something you can implement on-farm to make a positive difference.

“The programme for each regional event is designed by the local DairyNZ teams and customised based on that region’s particular challenges and opportunities. Most events also feature local farmers talking about their own experiences and results,” he says.

The Farmers’ Forum regional events include time for informal discussion with DairyNZ scientists and developers plus others who lead key industry research and development programmes.

Farmers can view the DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum conference programmes for each region and register online at www.dairynz.co.nz/farmersforum. Registration prior to each event is essential.

Registration is free to levy-paying farmers and their staff – there is a $50 charge for all others.

Each event runs from 10am-2pm. Lunch is provided.
