Extension Partner - Southland/South Otago (currently on parental leave)
Keely is the extension partner for the Eastern Southland and Gore areas and is based from our Invercargill office. She joined DairyNZ in 2019, firstly in the M Bovis Response before moving into the Southland South Otago regional team in April 2020.
Keely grew up on Waikato and Southland dairy farms before studying a BCom Ag at Lincoln University. She is currently farming in an equity partnership alongside her husband on a sheep farm in the Catlins.
She is passionate about seeing farmers sharing information, not only to improve on-farm efficiencies but also to grow and thrive in the dairy sector.
