Dairy Awards Plan 25th Anniversary Celebrations

Dairy Awards Plan 25th Anniversary Celebrations

The 2014 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the sharemilker competition with a special launch event and celebration ball at its annual awards dinner.

National convenor Chris Keeping says the milestone anniversary creates an opportunity to delve into the sharemilker competition history and to celebrate its success.

“It’s pretty amazing to think that over those years thousands of sharemilkers have participated in the competition, relishing the opportunity to have their business analysed and enhance their progress in the industry while having some fun and meeting lots of people.”

Mrs Keeping says the competition has had a huge impact on many past winners and entrants. “In a strange way it impacts on all those involved. My association has been about 15 years and it’s incredibly satisfying to see how the competition affects the personal development of the participants and lifts their confidence to take on new challenges and opportunities.”

She says the 2014 awards – New Zealand Sharemilker/Equity Farmer of the Year, New Zealand Farm Manager of the Year and New Zealand Dairy Trainee of the Year – will be launched in Taranaki on October 22. The sharemilker competition began in Taranaki and the first national winners, Kevin and Diane Goble, represented Taranaki.

Organisers have also confirmed that a 25th anniversary ball will be held following the national awards dinner in Auckland on May 9 next year.

The New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards are supported by national sponsors Westpac, DairyNZ, Ecolab, Federated Farmers, Fonterra, Honda Motorcycles NZ, LIC, Meridian Energy, Ravensdown, RD1, Triplejump, along with industry partner Primary ITO.

“While plans are still being finalised for these events, we are pretty excited about the 2014 awards programme.”
