Alliance is launching a Winter Workshop Series for sheep, venison and beef farmers next month.

The co-operative is holding 12 workshops across the country for a range of shareholders and those interested in supplying livestock to the company.

The series is aimed at Alliance’s female shareholders, existing shareholders and those entering the industry or returning to farming.

Attendees will receive an update on the latest developments at the co-operative, global markets and products.  Alliance directors and staff will be on-hand to answer questions.

Heather Stacy, general manager livestock and shareholder services at Alliance, explains the co-operative decided to extend its popular Women’s Workshops programme following feedback from farmers.

“The response from participants in our previous Women’s Workshops was that while they were keen to continue the women-only events, men would find workshops interesting and useful too. We know it is sometimes hard for farming couples to take time out from the farm at the same time, so this new programme provides options to suit everyone.

“These workshops are an excellent opportunity for shareholders to hear more about the co-operative and gain some key insights or those keen to be part of New Zealand’s only true 100 percent farmer-owned major red meat co-operative,” says Stacy.
