A Fresh Approach to the New Zealand Agricultural Show

A Fresh Approach to the New Zealand Agricultural Show

July 7, 2022

Like many of our favourite events in 2021, The NZAG Show was unable to go ahead as planned.

The great news is they have produced a fantastic TVNZ 1 special - definitely worth a watch.

This special showcases all the unique stories of the New Zealand Agricultural Show, from the latest innovations to traditions steeped in history. Hosted by Ali Pugh and Tangaroa Walker.

It is a terrific snapshot not only of The New Zealand Agricultural Show, but also of the industries that support it - including some fantastic footage of the alpaca section - breed and fleece, and also onfarm with Frank and Anya Walkington (at 35:40).

Opportunities like this are fantastic for the New Zealand alpaca industry and we congratulate the New Zealand Agricultural Show, and the participants for their innovation.

This was aired on 12th December, and can still be viewed on demand by clicking the link above, or on the picture.
