Energy efficiency and milk cooling, what’s needed?

The new milk cooling regulations are coming into force in June. Potentially you could spend a lot of money upgrading your system, but it may not be needed.

Jim Miller, (Millbridge Consulting), will speak about:
• The nuts and bolts of the new regulations.
• Measuring the capacity of what you already have.
• Determining what you actually need.

He will also talk about how to save energy in your dairy by using: different tariff structures, heat recovery and new technology.

Health and safety simplified

A Worksafe inspection can be a help, rather than a hindrance. Not only that, did you know that ACC will give you a 10% discount if your health and safety planning is up to scratch?

WorkSafe will let you know what your obligations are and the essential bases you need to cover.

Have a look at the following examples. Do any of them apply to you? If they do then maybe you should come along!
• Creating a plan is too big a hassle, and you haven't got round to it.
• You have a plan, but you aren't sure if it is quite right.
• You aren't sure what your responsibilities are for: your sharemilker, relief milkers, other staff, contractors, visitors, the sharemilkers’ children…?

Free event, all welcome. Morning tea and lunch provided.
