Day 2 of the Barista STAR holiday programme started with fresh coffee today!

Nine Iona year 12 & 13s took time out of their holidays to learn the art of making great coffee.

STAR courses are available to senior high school students throughout the year across a wide range of subject areas. These courses help students decide what they may wish to study at tertiary level or provide new skills that can be used to get a holiday job, or just for fun and self-development. Some STAR courses will also gain students NCEA Level 2 credits.

Reduce calving spread with SGL


Short Gestation Length (SGL) semen allows you to get cows in-calf late in mating. Using SGL semen should condense your calving spread, give more time for cows to recover and generate more days of milk. Not only can this boost your profits, but SGL is also a cost-effective alternative to using natural mating bulls in weeks 7 to 10.

Talk to your Agri Manager about SGL options for your herd.
