Farmers urged to register for DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum
Northland farmers urged to register for DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum, 5 April
DairyNZ’s national series of Farmers’ Forum events kicks off in Whangarei on Friday, 5 April.
The event is free to levy-paying farmers and their staff who are urged to register this week for the informative and practical seminars to be held at the ASB Leisure Centre from 9.30-2pm.
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.
Every second year the event is held in the regions where forum topics are customised based on locally relevant issues.
Topics to be covered at the Northland event include: herd reproductive performance, environmental management, pasture management, farmer resilience, farm effluent planning, once-a-day milking, plate metering chicory, mixed pastures, the Forage Value Index - the new rating system for pasture grasses - and maintenance equations.
Farmers can view the DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum conference programmes for Northland and register online at www.dairynz.co.nz/farmersforum.
Registration is free to levy-paying farmers and their staff – there is a $50 charge for all others.
Lunch is provided.
