Due to circumstances beyond our control, the date of this event has been changed from Tuesday 17th May to Monday 16th May. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

On a topic that will be equally relevant to dairy, sheep and beef and grain operations Rob Hewett, Chairman, Silver Fern Farms will speak on the present challenges and opportunities for agri-sector businesses.

Come and hear Rob’s views on a range of issues including the importance of meeting consumer requirements, NPD, branding, capital requirements for investment in new market development, processing plant upgrades and how these issues affect farms and farm businesses, with reference to Silver Fern Farms as an example.

Join us at J'Tees Golf and Function Centre, 411 Gladstone Road South, Mosgiel on MONDAY 16th May at 5.30pm for a complimentary drink and nibbles. Cash bar available. NOTE THE DATE CHANGE.

Rob is looking forward to speaking to the Otago branch of the Rural Business Network and we are keen to get as many shareholders and owners of local farm businesses along as possible.

Rob is a 7th generation farmer, who has farmed in the Clutha District since 2002, running a sheep and beef operation with large forestry interests. A graduate of Lincoln with a BComAg and an M.Com (Hons) in Marketing, Rob says he always wanted to be tied up with farming.

Rob has been Chairman of Silver Fern Farms since December 2013 and has been a member of their Board since 2008. Along with being Chair of the Clutha District Economic Development Agency, Rob remains Director of a number of other companies and is a former Board member of FarmIQ.
