NAME: MATTHEW BENTON

ROLE: FARM CONSULTANT

PATHWAY: BACHELOR OF AGRICULTURE SCIENCE

Matthew grew up on a family operated dairy farm which stimulated his interest in farming. This grew after he enjoyed working on farms in Waikato and North Canterbury during school and university holidays. “Farm work gave me the opportunity to experience different systems and gain skills and knowledge about the day-to-day management of dairy farming.”

His current role consists of completing on-farm visits, talking with farmers about everything from the operational ‘cows and grass’ side, right through to the strategic direction of the business.
