Mystery Creek Pavilion
DairyNZ's main stand in the Mystery Creek Pavilion will look at some of the key changes and achievements from levy investment over the past decade. We’ll share farmer stories and celebrate their successes as we reflect on how far we’ve come as a sector. We’ll also consider how to address the challenges ahead. Find out where your levy money goes and give us your view on what our spending priorities should be. Follow us on Facebook to find out how you can be part of our site at Fieldays 2017 and share your story - even if you’re not there in person.
