About the Event

Under the supervision of son Campbell Tait, the Tait Family Trust converted their Hinds 275 ha cropping farm to dairy eight years ago.

Being himself a PINZ member, and Valuer, Campbell provided a wonderful field day and information regarding costs and projections for our Branch some eight years ago.

Afternoon tea is included in the registration fee.
