WE DID IT!
StockRock impressed both the crowds and judges this year at the 2016 National Fieldays in Hamilton over the weekend where we were awarded ‘Best Innovation Showcase Site’ award from a competitive field of over 1000 sites.
The theme for the 2016 Fieldays is "Collaborate to Accelerate Innovation", so we are particularly thrilled to have won this prestigious accolade. Recognising innovation in the agricultural sector is at the heart of the event, so to have topped the field in this award category is really fantastic news.
StockRock has been exhibiting at Fieldays since 2006, so each year product manager Shane Smith tries to liven it up with a new or different theme. This year’s site also featured the launch of a new landscaping rock, Ngakuru Stone as a feature design element of the site. Ngakuru Stone will be available to the public from select landscaping supply stores in the Central North Island by early Spring 2016. It is an attractive, lightweight, creamy-hued volcanic rock suitable for many applications from garden ground cover to individual design feature rocks.
The site also displayed the traditional farm race material (StockRock) they have previously featured. StockRock is well proven over the North Island, helping to improve lameness in cows by up to 90%. The company’s key message is if dairy cows are not being milked due to lameness, there is a down time in production, and StockRock will help to improve that with their races. See the StockRock website for more information about StockRock.
Fieldays Judges commended the site on its unique and creative style. Shane has worked really hard to create a display that makes people stop and look, so we are thrilled he has been recognised for his efforts.
