Congress 2015 Media Room

We posted relevant information for IFAJ 2015 delegates as it came in on this page. Our aim was to provide as much as we could in electronic format so you had access to necessary documents.


Useful facts from IFAJ 2015 are:

  • Over 152 agricultural journalists came to see New Zealand agriculture for themselves
  • Agricultural journalists from 27 nations were in attendance
  • Twenty five speakers – 11 keynotes and 14 Talking Heads – provided their experience and knowledge to set the scene for New Zealand and its primary production sector
  • Five farm stream buses a day over three days carried delegates to see dairy, red meat, horticulture, science and innovation and general
  • Thirty six farms, research establishments and companies enthusiastically and willingly shared their experience with delegates.
  • Six hundred dinners were provided at The Verandah, Silver Fern Farms Te Aroha, Hobbiton and Vilagrad 
  • Three hundred delicious paper-bag lunches were prepared, carried away on buses and eaten
  • Hundreds of tweets have already been twittered @IFAJ2015NZ #ifaj2015
  • Nineteen sponsors, led by principal sponsor DairyNZ, meant that we were able to stage the event - without their support we could not have done it! Thank you, all!
