Extra sites have been added to accommodate stronger demand from exhibitors at the 2019 Effluent & Environment Expo at Mystery Creek Events Centre on 19 and 20 November

Expo organiser Amanda Hodgson has also announced a new strategy in response to pressure  from farmers searching for more answers on managing their total environmental footprint, including effluent management.

"Management of a farm’s total environment is under the spotlight more than ever, so farmers are asking for wider solutions than just how to manage effluent around their dairies or dairy housing systems," she says.

"Effluent management is still the Expo’s primary focus for now, but we can see potential to broaden that out to offer farmers advice, products, and services across the entire farm environment package. This is the really just the start of a journey."

A new brand and logo have been released to capture the broader focus of the Expo and appeal to other livestock farming sectors and the companies that service them.

A new layout, which takes in the entire Event Centre pavilion at Mystery Creek, home of the National Fieldays® event just south of Hamilton, means there’s scope to increase exhibitor numbers to more than 100.

Speakers and seminar topics are close to being finalised. This year’s Expo will follow a similar format to the highly successful 2018 event and remain free for farmers to attend, thanks to the generosity of sponsors Fonterra FarmSource, Rabobank, DairyNZ, Waikato Regional Council, Mystery Creek, and official media partner, NZ Dairy Exporter.
