B+LNZ 'Farming through Challenging Times' Evening: Piopio | Beef + Lamb New Zealand

B+LNZ 'Farming through Challenging Times' Evening: Piopio

Join us for a post cyclone catch up to discuss a positive way forward through current challenges.

The evening will finish with canapes and platters and a cash bar.


Russell Smith and Doug Burnell, Technical Field Representatives - PGG Wrightson

Russell and Doug will be discussing what we need to be thinking about now in relation to pasture recovery and renewal.  This will be particularly helpful for those that suffered flooding, slips and erosion from recent events but also those making plans through autumn to ensure good winter feed supplies.

Peter Keeling, PerrinAg

Peter will be looking at some of the business challenges farmers are currently facing. Whilst inflation, schedule prices and interest rates aren’t within our direct circle of influence, there are important things we can do to help plan and prepare for leaner times and build business resilience for the longer term.
