2023 Deer Industry Conference on the move to Canterbury | Issue 186

Mar 2, 2023

On the move to Canterbury

Due to Cyclone Gabrielle, the decision has been made to not hold this year's Deer Industry Conference in Napier.

The Canterbury West Coast Branch of the NZDFA have offered to host and we will be welcoming attendees to Ashburton on Wednesday 10 May.

Details are being worked through fast, and we will update you on the programme as soon as possible.

The Branch Chairs will also meet on the Tuesday afternoon, 9 May.

The highlight of the conference will be the awards dinner on the Wednesday evening and will feature presentations to the winners of the Matuschka, Deer Industry, and Environmental Awards as well as announcing the winners of the MSD Photo Competition.


Register your interest in sponsoring with Conference Organiser Melissa Bähler on or 027 664 3080.

If you would like to discuss the conference, please get in touch with Producer Manager Lindsay Fung on or 027 668 0141.
