Dairy Awards Finalists in Auckland for Annual Awards
The 33 finalists in the 2015 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards are in Auckland, where the winners of the New Zealand Sharemilker/Equity Farmer of the Year, New Zealand Farm Manager of the Year and New Zealand Dairy Trainee of the Year will be announced on Saturday night .
“The national awards is a big deal for these finalists – they’ll meet some key industry people, develop lifelong friendships and important networks, and be exposed to opportunities that’ll propel their career forward,” National Convenor Chris Keeping says.
Judging has been taking place during the past two weeks, as judges have visited the sharemilker/equity farmer and farm manager finalists on their farms. However, the final judging component will take place tomorrow when all finalists will participate in an interview.
“There’s a lot at stake, as the winners will share prizes worth more than $180,000 and gain a reputation that will help them to take the next step in their career. Bankers are more prepared to lend to our winners and employers will seek them out.”
Mrs Keeping says the winners will be announced at a sold out black tie function in front of 560 people at Sky City. The Minister of Trade Hon Tim Groser is attending and the awards dinner will be MC’d by TV3 journalist Mike McRoberts.
The New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards are supported by national sponsors Westpac, DairyNZ, Ecolab, Federated Farmers, Fonterra, Honda Motorcycles, LIC, Meridian Energy, New Zealand Farm Source, Ravensdown, and Triplejump, along with industry partner Primary ITO.
