About our Guest Speaker: Anita Kendrick
Anita Kendrick always wanted to be outdoors. She’s started working at Te Whārua station straight out of school and has been there for 12 years. Her next dream is to work on a farm in the South Island. A dream we have no doubt she will achieve as she has shown her drive and passion through tough times. Not long into her farming career an accident left her a paraplegic. She had to start all over to find her place on farm and working out her new capabilities.
Her story is an inspiring one and shows the positive outcomes that can be achieved by working together to find new solutions even when the unexpected happens.

New improvements to how B+LNZ manages events
We now have a new event website that offers additional features, and we’ve made further improvements since it was launched. Find out more about the new events website here.
COVID-19 event protocols
There will be some changes to how events are run so that we adhere to the government’s COVID-19 requirements: COVID-19.govt.nz. In particular, B+LNZ needs to manage risks, and have the ability to contact trace attendees if anything were to happen.
- It is imperative that every individual pre-registers for any B+LNZ events to avoid the risk of being turned away upon arrival.
- If you have cold or flu symptoms, please stay at home.
The outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis has highlighted the importance of on-farm biosecurity. When attending a B+LNZ field day please ensure you have clean footwear and vehicles are not carrying fresh muck or vegetation. This will help reduce the risk of spreading weeds, pests and diseases onto our host farms and across our country. To stay clean, we need to be clean.
