A catch-up over cricket

Tim Bond recently pulled on the pads for the dairy farmer’s team in Te Puke’s annual farmers versus growers cricket game. He shared his thoughts with Farmstrong on the serious message behind the fun.

We need to get the settings right

Over the next few weeks, hundreds of farmers will be heading to roadshow meetings across the country to hear more about the two pricing options developed by the He Waka Eke Noa (HWEN) Primary Sector Climate Action Partnership.

No need to do it alone

Todd and Anneke Reeves manage 480 cows on a 250ha family farm in Pukekohe, South Auckland. Todd recently shared his thoughts with Farmstrong on how to live well to farm well.

Partnership to improve backcountry communications

In the backcountry and wilderness environments that Oxford SAR teams operate in, effective and reliable communications are essential. The satellite equipment, services and expertise provided by Woi, and powered by Kacific, has provided Oxford SAR with the ability to effectively manage our SARTrack management systems and communications at the location of each search, regardless of where this happens to be.

Why Woi works better for farmers

If you live outside one of New Zealand’s major urban centres (and let’s face it, not a lot of farming takes place in town), you probably already know that satellite is the hot ticket when it comes to fast and reliable broadband.
