B+LNZ Southern South Island Mid Winter Dinner

Beat the winter blues and join us for an uplifting evening while catching up with like-minded people. Salute winter and join us for a two-course meal, social time and a cash bar.


Guest speaker: Dan Steele 

Gaining knowledge and value for you and your property Dan Steele is a conservationist, father, farmer, tourism operator, restauranteur, and generally passionate kiwi.

He owns and lives on Blue Duck Station with his wife Sandy and children Blue (11), Snow (7) and 4-year-old twin boys Forest and River.

Sitting on the banks of the Whanganui and Retaruke Rivers, and surrounded by Whanganui National Park, Blue Duck Station is an outdoor enthusiast’s playground.

The station has one of the highest concentrations of blue ducks and kiwis in New Zealand and there’s wētās, native bats and fish, too.

Dan and Sandy work passionately with their team to conserve the endangered blue duck and improve the health of native bush and rivers, while educating visitors on the area’s history.

Naturally, a place like Blue Duck Station has plenty of stories to be told, so join us on Thursday 7 July.

Note: this dinner follows the B+LNZ Progressive Ag Conference 2022 in Gore from 12.30–6.15pm at the Croydon Lodge Hotel.


Tickets cost $40 per person.
