Extension Partner for Mid-Canterbury, based out of Ashburton.
Hugh started with DairyNZ in January 2020 as a Trainee Consulting Officer in Southland. Prior to that, he attended Massey University in Palmerston North studying an Agri-commerce degree majoring in farm management.
Hugh comes from a farming background and was brought up on a farm in Te Akau (just north of Raglan) where he enjoyed spending his school and university holidays working on the family farm. He has a passion for agriculture and supporting others.
Hugh feels privileged to have the opportunity to work with Mid Canterbury farmers and gets a real kick out of assisting them to improve and capitalize on the opportunities that currently exist within the dairy sector.
