AgriVantage are proud to partner with Dairy Women’s Network and increase the value that women bring to their farm businesses says South Island Business Manager Cheryl Farrar, a former dairy farmer and calf rearer.

A new partnership between the Dairy Women’s Network (DWN) and New Zealand-owned milk replacer supplier AgriVantage is set to increase farmers’ knowledge around the importance of nutrition in the early stages of calf rearing.

Recognising that an animal’s start in life determines their long-term health and lifetime production, AgriVantage supports farmers throughout New Zealand to grow strong, healthy and productive animals.

With both organisations providing the industry with the resources to raise happy and healthy calves, the partnership was a natural progression, says DWN chief executive Jules Benton.

“We are proud to have AgriVantage on board as a network partner. Proper animal nutrition is vital for production and farm performance, and to partner with a company who shares this ethos creates a valuable resource for us to tap into as we support our members and their farm businesses.”

The partnership means farmers and DWN members around the country will have access to AgriVantage’s in-house team of rearing and nutrition specialists through national workshops and regional events.

“Along with providing the best technical advice, we focus on helping farmers to optimise the development and production capacity of their stock,” says AgriVantage south island business manager Cheryl Farrar.

“We work with those who aim to improve their production capacity and we understand the value that women bring to farming businesses, so we are proud to partner with the Dairy Women’s Network to help make calf rearing both easier and more profitable.”
