Popular Field Days function at Massey site
New Massey University research is on show at Central Districts Field Days, currently running at Manfeild Park in Feilding.
Massey University is the major sponsor of the event, which concludes tomorrow.
Yesterday, Professor in Farm Management Nicola Shadbolt presented a webinar from Massey’s site on how to grow farm resilience. This morning, ANZ chief economist Cameron Bagrie spoke about the current economic climate. Both webinars can be viewed online at onefarm.ac.nz.
A large number of alumni attended a function at Massey site last night where they heard Vice-Chancellor Steve Maharey and Mr Bagrie speak.
Research being showcased at the site includes a project by Charlotte Pedersen from the College of Creative Arts in Wellington (pictured), whose Hoofcare Modular Treatment Unit allows the farmer to set up a cattle crush and race, specific to their needs, to help treat cows with any noticeable illness or injuries picked up during day-to-day handling of the animals.
Massey University staff can attend Field Days free of charge tomorrow by showing staff identification at the gate. Students with Massey identification can attend for the discounted price of $7.50.
