Dana (23) is CRV’s new field consultant for the South Waikato, including Tokoroa, Putaruru, Arapuni and Cambridge.
She has dairying in her blood. Dana grew up on a dairy farm in Te Awamutu and then left school at 16 to pursue her own career in dairy farming. Safe to say she knows a bit about cows.
But she also gets the big picture and understands that data and genetics are the key to breeding more efficient dairy herds with a lower environmental footprint.
“Accurate data is crucial to farmers’ breeding decisions, so having clean and tidy herd records needs to be a priority,” says Dana. “Farmers should know the parentage of their animals to help them make good breeding decisions.”
Dana joined CRV in 2020 in the company’s customer support team. She is rejoining CRV in her new field-based role after the birth of her son.
