Why Attend?

Join us on farm with John Martin, robotic dairy farmer, to look at the farm system and how robots have played a part in this successful business.

Topics covered on the day will be:

  • How robots have impacted farming in a remote area
  • The challenges and opportunities with adopting technology on farm
  • DairyNZ tools (DairyBase + Econtracker) and how these can be utilised when planning ahead financially
  • Update on new DairyNZ strategy and what this will look like in the Lower North Island.
  • We will also have the opportunity to have regional/industry updates from rural professionals

After we are finished at the farm, we will head to the Apiti Tavern for a warm lunch! Bring along your farm team and treat them to a bite to eat ahead of calving. Please RSVP by text to Tegan Pope on 027 808 3411 to help the Tavern cater for you.

This event is open to all farmers and rural professionals, so bring your neighbour and we will see you there.
