Why Attend?

Dairy effluent continues to come to the surface with considerations to resource consents, environmental management and in many cases significant costs to stay in business. A big thank you to our 3 hosts showcasing 3 different dairy effluent systems. In order of farm visits:

Cliptank: Doug Pamment, Wharere Road, Te Puke, SN 21554
Bladder: Steve Wattam, 1696 SH2, Te Puke, SN 21595
Pond: Brendon Jones, 18A Rotoehu Road, Te Puke, SN 21585

Farms are approximately 5 minutes drive between each stop where there will be 30 minute discussions on each system with allowance for travel etc so that we finish on time at 1pm. Aside from looking at each system, we will also be talking about experiences and lessons learnt.

A big thank you to Farmlands for providing lunch. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
