The free farm open day will give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into producing their milk, cheese, icecream and yoghurt, with the theme ‘from our grass, to your glass’.
Free icecreams will be on hand for a taste of one of the many products milk is made into.
Children can meet DairyNZ’s education ambassador Rosie the cow, take a tour through the cab of a milk tanker and enter competitions.
Tours through the milking shed will provide an up-close view of cows being milked, with farmers available to answer questions.
DairyNZ, along with Owl Farm’s industry partners Fonterra, Livestock Improvement, PGG Wrightson, and Ballance Agri-Nutrients, will be on-site to provide information through interactive displays and to answer visitors’ questions.
