The forum, at Mystery Creek Events Centre, is hosting Minister of Agriculture Hon Damien O’Connor; Minister for Climate Change Hon James Shaw; Air New Zealand CEO Christopher Luxon; and comedy icon and mental health campaigner Mike King.
Registrations are being taken now for the two-day biennial DairyNZ Farmers’ Forum, which is expected to attract over 700 farmers and will discuss sustainable farming, future food and farm practices.
Additional speakers include future of food specialist Julian Cribb, economist Cameron Bagrie, futurist Roger Dennis and a wide range of dairy sector leaders.
Day one looks at what is driving change in the global markets, the changing political environment and the implications for New Zealand dairying. Day two looks at new technologies and techniques to help farmers respond to the sector’s challenges and opportunities, and advice to boost farm businesses.
