The line-up includes a dairy consultant, a district mayor, and a leadership coach. Hawke’s Bay dairy consultant Rachel Baker, Tararua district mayor Tracey Collis, and Southland dairy leadership coach Loshni Manikam are in the running for the coveted dairy award, which will be announced during Dairy Women’s Network’s conference in Rotorua on Thursday, 22 March.
