Kim Reid joined the Bay of Plenty team as a consulting officer in September 2015. Kim is a returnee consulting officer. Originally from a dairying background in Taranaki, she joined the Canterbury DairyNZ team for three years, following there she returned to farming, first as a sharemilker in Canterbury and then most recently in Taranaki, managing a family farm.
Kim is excited about her new role covering the Central Plateau, a region she feels provides the scope for working with larger scale farming operations she enjoys, while remaining not too far from family in Taranaki. She enjoys working with dairy farmers and has a broad appreciation for the challenges and opportunities faced daily, seasonally and on a longer term basis.
