Stuart was first exposed to the dairy industry at a young age when visiting his Uncle’s family who were dairy farmers in the Taumarunui region.
He then recaptured the dream of being involved with the industry taking Agricultural Science throughout High School and working on a local dairy farm in the weekends. He has since worked on a couple of different farming operations in Waikato, both split calving and spring calving farms and went on to study a Bachelor of Agricultural Science at Massey University where he was on a DairyNZ scholarship.
Stuart has been with DairyNZ since the start of 2016. He enjoys being involved with the large scale of farming operations in the Canterbury region and getting to know local operators and utilising networks to best benefit these farmers with the various challenges that they currently face.
