Farm Open Day

Tuesday 5 November 2019

Maui Milk’s third annual Open Day was held at Waikino Station on the 5th of November. The sun was shining and around 180 visitors were treated to a milking demonstration before moving to the barn to hear about progress made this year. Maui Milk chairman Paul McGilvary welcomed all before a session focussed on farming and genetics which involved General Manager Peter Gatley, Geneticist Jake Chardon, Farm Manager Katy Day and AgResearch Scientist Dr. Sue McCoard.
