Massey University’s site at Central Districts Field Days.
Connect with Massey at Field Days
Massey University is once again the major partner of Central Districts Field Days at Manfeild Park beginning today.
University staff can visit Field Days free of charge by showing their photo identification at the gate.
Massey University students can enter for free on Thursday and Friday with identification – normal gate charges apply on Saturday. Alumni can pre-purchase a day pass for $6 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
An alumni event will also be held on Friday March 16, at 4.30pm in the Massey University pavilion. Staff or alumni wishing to attend can also contact the alumni office to RSVP.
This year, Massey’s Central Districts Field Days site will focus on the collaborations that have led to real advances in the agri-food sector. Projects involving precision agriculture, food technology and pasture management will all be on show.
Massey University Vice-Chancellor Steve Maharey says Central Districts Field Days is a major event on the University calendar.
“We pride ourselves on connecting with industry so we can ensure our research is relevant, timely and able to ensure New Zealand’s agri-food sector is a world leader,” he says. “Field Days is a great opportunity to continue that discussion with industry – to find out what’s needed to move this nation forward, and to showcase the things we’ve done to meet that goal.”
