  • It's an exciting time in the Bay of Plenty DairyNZ office this week following the announcement of the NZDIA winners at dinners on Monday and Wednesday. It has been a fantastic time seeing all the great things being done on dairy farms around here. You too have the opportunity to see what has made the winners at their field days. Check out the BOP NZDIA winners and Central Plateau winners.


    Bay of Plenty Focus on Dairying is happy to support Federated Farmers' farm open day this Sunday, 14 March, at Papamoa. The McLeods open their gate to show those who live in town, what dairy farming in New Zealand is really all about. It's really important to have farmers help out on the day so if anyone is able to volunteer, please contact Steve Bailey, Federated Farmers, 027 273 3411.
