Enter Dairy Awards and go on Holiday

ENTER DAIRY AWARDS AND GO ON HOLIDAY

Those that enter the 2016 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards can win a holiday of their choosing – so long as they enter soon.

Entries in the 2016 New Zealand Share Farmer of the Year, Dairy Manager of the Year and Dairy Trainee of the Year competitions are now being accepted online at www.dairyindustryawards.co.nzand close on November 30.

Those that enter by midnight on November 20* will go into the Early Bird Entry Prize Draw and be in with a chance to win a share of $12,000 in travel vouchers and spending money.

One travel voucher and accompanying spending money will be given to an early entrant in each competition. There are three prize draws in total.

“With dairy farm budgets a bit tight this year we think the Early Bird Entry Prize Draw of travel vouchers and spending money are one way we can help dairy farmers take a break and have some fun,” Awards General Manager Chris Keeping says.

“Getting away from the farm and having a holiday is important. Many farmers use the time to enjoy family, and plan future personal and business goals.”

The prize draw for early entrants in the Share Farmer competition is valued at $6000, while it is worth $4000 for those eligible in the Dairy Manager contest and $2000 for eligible Dairy Trainee competition entrants.

Mrs Keeping says more than 200 people have already entered the 2016 awards programme, which aims to assist people to progress in their dairy farming career.

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

More information on the three competitions can be found at www.dairyindustryawards.co.nz.

*To be eligible for the Early Bird Entry Prize Draw, entrants must enter by midnight on November 20 and complete the judging process for the competition entered. The winners will be drawn from eligible entrants on 1 April 2016 and notified online at www.dairyindustryawards.co.nz on 4 April 2016.
