DairyNZ Chairman to speak at Oxford Farming Conference
New Zealand dairy farming will be front and centre at a prestigious farming conference being held in Oxford in England from January 2-4, 2013.
DairyNZ Chairman John Luxton has been invited to give his personal perspective on the New Zealand dairy farming experience at the Oxford Farming Conference examining the role of farming within British society.
Mr Luxton is one of a number of speakers lined up to present on a range of topics, including a seminal piece of work which quantifies the non-direct contributions farming makes to British society in a financial context and an Oxford Union Debate on economies of scale in agriculture.
Mr Luxton’s address will cover the different farming systems in New Zealand and the changing nature of dairy farming in New Zealand’s economy and communities.
He will be part of a political session with the UK Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Owen Paterson and an Irish member of the European Parliament Agricultural Committee Mairead McGuinness.
Mr Luxton, a former Minister of Agriculture and Cabinet Minister for nine years, is also currently co-chair of the Waikato River Authority.
