CRV Ambreed couple re-locate for South Island farming clients
CRV Ambreed herd improvement specialists, Mark and Sue Duffy, have packed up their bags and shifted to Oamaru, where they will be helping to improve farmers’ businesses across the South Island region.
The Duffy’s have a long passion for herd management and breeding and are looking forward to sharing their dairy experience with farmers who want to get the best results for their herd.
“We’ll be working across the region to help farmers achieve a productive, healthy, fertile and efficient herd,” said Mr Duffy.
“Getting good farming advice and support in the region is hard to come by, so Sue and I are really keen to hit the ground running and get farmers more insight, tools and solutions to achieve their farming goals,” he said.
Mark is CRV Ambreed’s sales and services manager for the South Island and currently manages about 20 full-time staff. Sue is the regional sales and services manager from Rakaia to Invercargill and has a team of eight field consultants, one services coordinator and a number of seasonal contractors.
While Mark’s strengths are around people management and farming business strategy, Sue tends to take a more hands on approach when in the field working with her farming clients, and her knowledge of cows and breeding is highly regarded among her staff and customers.
“While our individual clients’ goals differ depending on their farm type, location, current market conditions and environmental factors – one thing they all have in common is a focus on achieving a high-performing herd, and that’s where the team of consultants and I can help,” said Mrs Duffy.
“We are serious about helping farmers and our team will be working hard in the region to increase awareness and understanding of CRV’s products and services, and to offer an excellent alternative to what many farmers now do,” she said.
Mr Duffy said the shift was an exciting time for the couple and moving to Oamaru from Gore will bring a whole new set of challenges around meeting new people and getting to know the area.
“We are looking forward to the opportunities this move will bring, and meeting some friendly faces out on the golf course soon!” said Mr Duffy.
