“I want to be the rural professional that farmers look for and are happy to see driving up their track,” says Liz, who is CRV’s new field consultant for the region.
“For me, that’s all about building relationships with farmers based on trust. That takes time.”
Growing up in Oropi in rural Tauranga, Liz’s passion for the dairy industry began as a 17-year-old when she put cups on cows for the first time.
“I first learned to milk as a teenager on a friend’s farm. Since then, I have continued to build my career in the industry in a variety of roles,” says Liz.
Liz holds a Bachelor of Applied Science from Massey University. Her career has involved working as a fertiliser rep and as a tutor with Dairy Training Ltd. She has also spent time in dairy research, including working on a project involving early robotics in the dairy industry.
