Why Attend?

Come along and join our host farmer, Nigel Gaddes, to catch up on the season and the latest farming news.

We are going to look at how to control weeds, which are especially bad this year thanks to a wet season and some pasture damage.

We also want to gain insights and new ideas to make the recruiting process of new staff a success.

We'll discuss:

  • How to get the right team member applying to work on your farm
    • What does the current labour market look like? Is your job competitive enough to attract the perfect team member?
  • Looking after employees
    • How do you get the process right? What is required of you and what's best practice to ensure a good working relationship with your farm team?

We will also check out DairyNZ tools desinged to make your job easier.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Lunch will be provided.

Protect our industry - please arrive with clean boots to prevent the spread of disease, pest or weed.
