Sue Duffy  
I have been involved with the NZ Dairy Industry for almost my whole life. Raised on a dairy farm, AB Technician and working for CRV for over 14 years, latterly as a Regional Sales Manager in the South Island. Dairy genetics is a passion of mine and I enjoy helping the farmer select the right bulls for traits desired. Grazing genetics is the Focus in New Zealand, and we realise”One size doesn’t fit all”. We are passionate about selecting the right team of bulls to fit the customers’
needs. I am looking forward to returning to the UK for the third time in the last two years. This year I believe we have selected a great cross section of bulls, suitable to meet all the objectives of UK grasslands farmers. I look forward to assisting you with your Breeding Decisions.

John Preece  
I grew up on a farm in a very small farming district area called Matapu, which is on the southern side of Mt Egmont in the province of Taranaki in the North Island of New Zealand. The entire province of Taranaki is dominated by the mountain, either by its rich ash soils, regular rainfall, snow and at times drought. Living directly underneath this imposing natural landmark has a profound effect on all those who are blessed to be a resident in the area. I spent a large portion of my working life in dairying, either running my own dairy farming business or being directly involved in the service industry in some way. Becoming involved more closely with dairy genetics was a natural progression for me and I have spent the
last 7 years with CRV Ambreed managing the North Taranaki area promoting the very best genetics, products and services to around 400 dairy farmers. I am very much looking forward to spending time with UK farmers to assist you with breeding a profitable, well balanced, correctly structured and long-lasting cow that is ultimately a pleasure to milk.
