Dairy Industry Awards ramping up
The 2018 Dairy Industry Awards are approaching and organisers received 374 entries prior to Christmas, across three of the categories.
The Share Farmer of the Year, Dairy Manager of the Year and Dairy Trainee of the Year competitions are hotly contested. With a range of sponsors on board, it’s all go before the regional winners are announced.
“It is up to each entrant to determine how best to cover off the judging criteria,so it is important that entrants make the most of that time and plan well. This is where time spent planning over the summer will really pay off,” said General Manager of the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards, Chris Keeping.
In 2017, Fraser and Amber Carpenter from Karaka won Share Farmer of the Year for the Auckland/ Hauraki region, along with a number of merit awards.
The regional winners will be announced at an awards dinner on 10 March 2018 in Pukekohe. All regional winners will progress to a national final in Invercargill on 12 May.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
