DWN joins forces with Deosan

DWN joins forces with Deosan

Dairy Women’s Network has signed on a new dairying partner in Waikato-based company Deosan this month.

Dairy Women’s Network chief executive Zelda de Villiers says the Network is thrilled to work alongside Deosan, a New Zealand owned business specialising in udder health, dairy hygiene and liquid mineral products, to offer its 9300 members market-leading advice and education in the space.

In the coming months, Deosan will be presenting a series of free educational workshops on udder health and mastitis prevention to DWN members in key regions throughout the country as part of their agreement with the Network.

Deosan chief executive Kip Bodle says DWN was a good fit for the company and that many of his female staff members have long-supported and respected the Network and expressed an interest in the two organisations working together.

“From a business perspective, women are particularly influential in decision making around teat condition and mastitis prevention and we want to be engaging with an audience who is interested in the science behind these technologies.

“We recognise the contribution women make to dairy farming in New Zealand and are honoured to be able to provide our support to developing the role of women in the industry.”

Deosan is recognised as a preeminent name in product innovation around dairy shed consumable products, offering a complete range of teat care, dairy hygiene and liquid mineral products including its signature teat spray TeatX.

With nationwide distribution through all rural retailers, an increasing number of vets and a team of territory managers spanning the country, Deosan is well on the way to becoming another iconic Kiwi agribusiness brand, says Bodle.

De Villiers said DWN admired Deosan’s commitment to giving back to the industry and to protecting the resources that sustain it.

“We endeavour to source the most environmentally friendly ingredients and always look for ways to innovate our products so that we can improve biodegradability with no compromise to on-farm performance,” said Bodle.

“As a not-for-profit organisation, we are extremely grateful to Deosan, as we are to all our amazing partners for their support. We simply couldn’t deliver our members the high standard of education and support that we do, without them,” said de Villiers.
