DairyNZ Farmers Forum

These Forums have been developed in response to farmer requests for information on the latest economic outlook, regional issues, on-farm science and current farming practices. They provide an opportunity for face-to-face discussions with key people from DairyNZ, an ANZ economist and rural scientists, as well as the chance for farmers to hear from others about how the science is being applied on farm and participate in an interactive forum.

ANZ Economists, Cameron Bagrie and Con Williams will be sharing the speaking slots throughout the country.

To register for DairyNZ Farmer Forum events in you region, please see the DairyNZ Website.
