First Monitor Farm day at Wishnowsky's! 

Wednesday 10th February 2010 was a day Simon and Dennis Wishnowsky won’t forget for a long while – it was their first experience of opening up their farming business to all-comers, as the Meat & Wool NZ Monitor Farm Programme got underway at their place.

A good group of farmers and Ag. industry folk got to see firsthand the challenges, diversity and opportunities present on the Wishnowsky’s farm, before heading back to the woolshed for a cuppa and some vigorous discussion about ‘where to from here’ for the business.

Come along to the next day and hear the plan for the next 3 years (incorporating feedback from February’s discussion) - there will be some major policy changes plus much management ‘fine-tuning’ and business analysis which you’ll be able to apply to your own situation.

If you’d like to be on the Manawatu Monitor Farms mailing list, contact Greta Baynes or Charmaine Robertson at Totally Vets on (06) 323 6161 or and  There will be a newsletter out soon!
