Ready for Mating? Darfield Meeting

Please note that this meeting is full and we are not taking any more registrations.

Check out the other Ready for Mating meetings we are running and see if you can attend one of them.

Reproductive performance, one of the main focus areas for farmers in the region, has been a constant challenge in the district over the last few seasons, so preparedness is key!

Meetings held in four different locations will cover:

  • The latest information and research: Vanessa Robinson, from the DairyNZ Feed & Animal team and with a background in reproduction, will be sharing recent developments in reproductive research
  • A local case study: Hear from Brendon Walker, Manager of Te Ahu Patiki farm of Ngai Tahu Farming Ltd and Susan Geddes from VetLife Oxford. Brendon and Susan will be sharing the work done over the last 2 seasons to improve 6 week InCalf rate by 5% and the challenges ahead for this herd.
  • Heat detection: Being a key area of a successful mating, we will include a section on heat detection and preparing yourself and the whole team for mating

There will be something for everyone in the team, from key decision makers to junior staff, so don't miss out!

All meetings 10.30am - 1.00pm followed by a BBQ lunch thanks to Farmlands Darfield. Indoor venue details will be sent out when you register.
