Dairy awards launching
The 2016 Waikato Dairy Industry Awards is about to kick off with a launch event aimed at educating, informing and fuelling people interested in entering one of the competitions.
Regional manager Aaron Price said entries in the region’s Share Farmer of the Year, Dairy Manager of the Year and Dairy Trainee of the Year contests will be received from October 20.
‘‘We’re keen to see and hear what our on-farm researchers are working on to ensure the future sustainability and profitability of dairy farming, so are hosting our launch event at DairyNZ’s Scott Farm,’’ Price said.
‘‘It’ll make for a really interesting event, while past winners and entrants will also share insights.’’
He said there have been some significant changes to the entry criteria and contest names in the 2016 awards.
All entries are accepted online at www.dairyindustryawards.co.nz and will close on November 30.
