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.nzIn 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.
