DairyNZ’s national series of Farmers’ Forum is coming to Invercargill on Wednesday, 15 May.
The event is free to levy-paying farmers and their staff who are urged to register this week for the informative and
practical seminars to be held at Ascot Park Hotel from 9.30-2pm.
Each year the Farmers’ Forum provides a great opportunity for dairy farmers to see how their levy is invested and to
learn about dairy industry research and development work.
Every second year the event is held in the regions where forum topics are customised based on locally relevant issues.
Topics to be covered at the Southland event include: human resources, winter feed supply, nutrient use efficiency,
pasture species and diversity as related to nitrogen leaching, fertility, calf bedding and use of gibberellic acid.
