2013 Northland Regional Supreme Winners

Exemplary dairy farm management and care for the environment in a location very visible to members of the public have won the Supreme Award for brother and sister Shayne and Charmaine O’Shea in the 2013 Ballance Farm Environment Awards in Northland

Shayne told the judges “every day is show day” as the busy Kokopu Road bisects the dairy farm, which is some 12km to the north-west of Whangarei. He is very concerned how good the farm looks and very mindful of the visual impact of dairying to non-farmers, and how that can affect the whole dairy industry. That attitude is a big driver of farm policies, the judges said.
