Bringing beef knowledge to King Country

In conjunction with the Angus NZ AGM, King Country and Taranaki Ward are hosting a conference on April 8-9 in New Plymouth.

The two-day event will include education, entertainment, good dining and plenty of opportunities to socialise with fellow Angus Breeders, says Angus NZ King Country and Taranaki Ward chair Alan Donaldson.

The Angus NZ AGM will kick-start the event, followed by a happy hour, dinner and an auction of donated items. The auction is an annual event that raises money for Angus Youth.

The conference, held the following day, features New Zealand experts talking on a range of topics including how to increase profits from the use of new and existing technology, and exploiting genetic gains.

A speech from All Blacks mental skills coach and manager Gilbert Enoka and a social hour will wrap up the event.

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit King Country/Taranaki Ward studs and see what the region has to offer following the conference.

After having to cancel the annual bus tour last year due to Covid-19, the ward decided to do something a little different by hosting a conference-style event, says Alan.

“The invitation is out to all Angus cattle breeders to come along, listen, learn a little or a lot, and meet other breeders who share your passion.”
