Dairy awards ambassadors to Fieldays

The winners of the 2013 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards will attend the National Agricultural Fieldays in their first ambassadorial role since winning the national titles in Wellington last month.

The 2013 Sharemilker/Equity Farmers of the Year Don and Jess Moore, Farm Manager of the Year Richard Pearse and Dairy Trainee of the Year James Warren will attend the Fieldays’ opening and spend time with awards sponsors.

National convenor Chris Keeping said attending Fieldays will also enable them to investigate the latest farming innovations.

“The Fieldays is a huge mecca for NZ’s farming industry so it’s a great opportunity for our winners to meet heaps of people, learn about the latest technology and innovations that may help them on farm and share their experiences with interested people,” Keeping said.

“Our awards sponsors really enjoy the opportunity to have our national winners visit their Fieldays site to meet key personnel and see the range of products and services on offer.”

The 45th National Agricultural Fieldays open at Mystery Creek, near Hamilton, on Wednesday June 12.
