DairyNZ will hold a series of farmer meetings over the next two months to help participants better understand what is driving changes in the sector and how to respond.

The Farmers Forum 2020 programme kicks off in Northland on February 18. Events will follow in Waikato, Southland, Taranaki and Canterbury.

The events are free DairyNZ levy players and their staff. DairyNZ says farmers will get updated on regional and national policy development, latest science and an overview of the industry body’s activities.

Economist Cameron Bagrie will speak on what’s driving change in global markets and the latest on the commodity market and the power of the consumer.

Dietician and celebrity chef Nadia Lim will talk about the value of 'nude food' and where dairy fits in the future.

DairyNZ chief executive Tim Mackle will touch on how it is responding to farmers’ feedback and what DairyNZ’s focus will be in the next five years.

DairyNZ strategy and investment leader, Bruce Thorrold and scientists will also speak.
