This year’s Fieldays theme is Cultivating Value. Come and have a chat with us about where we’re investing your levy and the value that investment is returning for you and the dairy sector.
Show us your Farm Gauge results and win
At last year’s Mystery Creek Fieldays we launched DairyNZ’s Farm Gauge (dairynz.co.nz/farm-gauge) – an online tool to help assess your farm business, identify opportunities and create an action plan. It’s now been updated so you can access your results from anywhere, any time.
To mark this milestone, we’re giving you the opportunity to win a drone, so you can get another kind of picture of your whole farm business.
How to win
Discuss your Farm Gauge results with a DairyNZ specialist at Mystery Creek Fieldays in Hamilton (and South Island Dairy Event, SIDE, in Invercargill later in June). They’ll help you hone in on any areas of opportunity. After your chat, you’ll receive a handy Farm Gauge magnet to record your focus areas on and we’ll put you in the draw to win the drone.
It’s easy to enter:
✔ Complete at least one section in Farm Gauge.
✔ Save your results.
✔ Head to our stand at Mystery Creek Fieldays or SIDE.
✔ Show us your results.
Careers and Education Hub
We’re part of the Careers and Education Hub where school groups, teachers, students, their parents and anyone interested can learn more about careers, rewards and training opportunities available in the primary sector.
At the Health Hub, we’re taking people through the Five Ways of Wellbeing – Give, Take Notice, Be Active, Connect and Keep Learning – research shows that together, these five actions into day-to-day lives provide important physical and mental wellbeing benefits for individuals, families, communities and organisations.
The Rosie Show
Rosie, our ‘cowbassador’, will again be starring in her own show about life on a dairy farm, staged on the Village Green outside the main pavilion. When Rosie’s not performing, you’ll find her at the Old School Classroom in the Heritage Village.
