DWN and SealesWinslow deliver nourishing campaign for stressful season

Dairy Women’s Network members who have attended the SealesWinslow calf nutrition workshops over the past three months have walked away with a little added extra this year.

The organisations partnered with celebrity chef Michael Van de Elzen to create the ‘Nourish’ campaign to develop five nutritious, delicious and easy to prepare recipes to help farming families get through the notoriously busy time of calving and calf rearing.

Attendees of Dairy Women’s Network and SealesWinslow calf nutrition workshops, held in 15 locations throughout New Zealand over the past three months, were able to take the recipe cards away with them.

“Good nutrition tends to be something that goes out the window when people get stressed, so we wanted to support members during this period, and help develop the Dairy Women’s Network community through the provision of sharing healthy meal ideas,” said SealesWinslow animal nutritionist Dr Wendy Morgan who presented at the workshops.

Mr Van de Elzen surprised members of the Otorohanga calf nutrition workshop when he turned up and spoke briefly about the importance of good nutrition to help people get through busy times.

He cooked his chicken soup and muesli slice with mashed avocado for lunch and then spent time talking to members and signing their recipe cards.

"What a fantastic time I had being involved with the Nourish campaign,” said Mr Van de Elzen.

“It was great to get out into the country and meet so many lovely women involved in our agri sector. I've got a lot of admiration for what they do."

Dr Morgan said the workshops were a huge success, with maximum registration numbers achieved in many towns.

Predominantly members learnt about improving different aspects of calf rearing, and heard about different techniques and adaptations that can be made to existing infrastructure and management.

“There was strong interest at each event. Calf rearing is clearly a topic that Dairy Women’s Network members are passionate about and want as much information as they can get.

“We had people attend the workshops who are rearing calves for the very first season, as well as those who have been doing it for decades.”
