Entries for the 2022 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards (NZDIA) open October 1. Organisers say planning is well underway with national sponsors continuing to back the programme. DeLaval has renewed its sponsorship for the next three years.

NZDIA general manager Robin Congdon say this is a significant commitment.

"We're rapt to have world leaders in milking equipment and solution for dairy farmers as part of our national sponsor family," he says.

"DeLaval strives to make sustainable food production possible, ensuring milk quality and animal health and the NZDIA programme is an important vehicle to help them do that.

"We couldnt do what we do without the support from our national sponsors and it's fantastic to have their ongoing support," he says.

DeLaval Oceania marketing and communications manager Sharon Yeeles says it remains committed to supporting New Zealand dairy farmers.

"At DeLaval, we too are dairy farmers and have been supporting NZ dairy farmers since 1926, and have also milked our own herds for over 135 years.

"As part of our DNA we understand and recognise the key challenges that all dairy farmers face today and we look forward to supporting NZDIA and all the entrants in the coming 3 years," she says.

Entries open for the 2022 New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards on October 1st 2021 with registrations of interest able to be made now at dairyindustryawards.co.nz.

An announcement on the date and location of the 2022 National Awards gala dinner is expected by the end of August.
