Farmer COVID-19 'checklist' on the way for dairy sector Moving Day

Dairy farmers will soon be provided with further guidance on Moving Day after it was given the green light by the Government.

Annual Moving Day sees large number of dairy farming families, sharemilkers, contract milkers and employees move to new farms to start new employment and milking contracts.

DairyNZ Chief Executive Dr Tim Mackle told Rural Exchange it was a relief that the day, on June 1st, would go ahead after uncertainty around COVID-19.

He said a checklist would soon be provided with more details on extra precautions for farmers to keep themselves and the public safe.
