2019 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards entries open

2019 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards entries open October 1st.

With less than a week until entries open in the 2019 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards, organisers of the regional competitions are gathering in Rotorua for the annual conference to fine tune processes and launch events.

General Manager Chris Keeping says the conference is an opportunity for the many volunteers from around the country to come together after a busy winter season. “The conference will be a busy few days, bringing everyone up-to-date with the changes made to the entry criteria and visa requirements,” she says.

“It’s also a chance for committee members to meet other regional committee members and share ideas and information, and to finalise their regional launch events, which provide an opportunity for prospective entrants to find out more information about the Awards and which category people are eligible to enter.

Entries in the New Zealand Share Farmer of the Year, New Zealand Dairy Manager of the Year and New Zealand Dairy Trainee of the Year categories will be accepted online at www.dairyindustryawards.co.nz from Monday 01 October.

The New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards are supported by national sponsors Westpac, DeLaval, Ecolab, Federated Farmers, Fonterra Farm Source, Honda Motorcycles, LIC, Meridian Energy and Ravensdown, along with industry partners DairyNZ and PrimaryITO.

The regional launch events are typically a lot of fun and provide an opportunity to meet other potential entrants, organisers and sponsors and to learn about the awards from past entrants. The functions are very social, with no charge, and are at a time that makes it easy for farmers to attend.

More information on regional committees and launch events are available at www.dairyindustryawards.co.nz/regions, and on regional facebook pages.
