Event description

Description

A must attend event for everyone involved in the NZ cattle industry.

The outbreak of Mycoplasma Bovis has been a catalyst for a rethink on the country's biosecurity­ from the farm gate to the meat processors. Now It's time to rebuild; to learn about new and innovative strategies which will revitalise and generate renewed confidence in cattle farming in New Zealand.

'Beyond Bovis' consolidates the outcome of those deliberations, for the first time presenting farmers with a smorgasbord of services, products and supports developed to preserve and protect the viability of your farming business now and into the future.

If you are farming cattle, you can't afford not to attend 'Beyond Bovis'.

The Seminar

The day will be MC'd by Ross Hyland and broken into a morning and afternoon session.

Ross has earned a name for himself as the head, and voice, of one of New Zealand’s largest feed milling operations – the voice of Seales Winslow which told people to ‘get over to Morrinsville’. Following the sale of the business, Hyland was in demand as an Agribusiness Advisor and in the course of that work gained access to some of New Zealand’s most iconic farms. He is the author of a newly published book ‘Our Land, Our People’ which captures the essence of NZ as a country, illuminating some great Kiwis along the way.
