Paul McGill has been elected as the new president of Wairarapa Federated Farmers. He replaces Anders Crofoot who decided not to seek re- election after four years as presi- dent. Mr McGill was Wairarapa's Grain and Seed chairman. His successor will be determined in the coming weeks. Mr Crofoot will remain on the executive doing policy work. Mr McGill, who is the prop- erty manager at Mayfield Farms, a 380 hectare 50/50 land finishing and arable block near Masterton, said filling Mr Crofoot's boots is no easy task, but he welcomed the challenge. Wairarapa is doing some great policy work here and I want to continue this work and grow our regional membership,'' he said. The other changes following the annual meeting last week was the appointment of Stephen Pound as the Meat and Fibre chairman, replacing Alan Stu- art, and the retirement of Mur- ray Schofield, who has put in more than 20 years of service for Federated Farmers. New farm technology goes on roadshow Wairarapa dairy farmers are invited to experience the future of farming when LIC's technology and innovation roadshow hits towns next week. The dairy farmer co-operative is showcasing its latest farm infor- mation and automation products in Masterton on May 18 as part of a nationwide tour for farmers to learn more about the products, and test them out. LIC lead product manager Nicky Bowden is expecting a good turnout. It is an opportunity for farmers to get up close to the new tech- nology, and learn from the experts about how the products can improve and simplify their daily operations. The best way to learn is by doing, so we're inviting dairy farmers in the greater Wairarapa area to attend the session closest to them, where they will be free to give the products a go and ask questions,'' she said. More than 1000 people attended last year's inaugural national roadshow which was held at main centres around New Zealand. After talking with farmers we've extended the roadshow this year to include 17 centres nomi- nated by farmers, right across the country -- from Kaitaia in the north to Wallacetown in the south. We think it's a good distri- bution of locations and should mean that, regardless of where farmers live, they should have relatively easy access to an LIC Technology and Innovation Roadshow. Regions aren't the only thing which has increased this year,'' Mrs Bowden said. This year, more LIC products will be on display including the new herd test reporting tool, MINDA Milk, as well as ones that featured strongly last year such as GeneMark DNA parental verifi- cation, Protrack, FarmKeeper, MINDA and MINDA Mobile. Gallagher, Allflex, Tracmap, Geosystems and Need a Nerd are also joining us at each location,'' she said. Mrs Bowden said MINDA enhancements in automated drafting, land management and herd test results reporting had received unprecedented interest from farmers. The LIC technology products help farmers to operate faster, smarter, better and more profit- ably which is ultimately what everyone is working to achieve in these changing times.'' This is their opportunity to see these products that they've heard about, give them a go and then ask the hard questions of our product managers.''
