Changes a-foot for 2019 Yikes! After a busy end to 2018 you may have noticed I skipped the Spring newsletter and am a bit late with the Summer edition. I hope everyone had a wonderful festive season with family and friends. I myself have had an exciting start to the year, moving south to Central Otago and beginning my veterinary career. In early December FBNZ held its AGM at PBB House in Feilding followed by a planning day at 2019 event venue, Solway Showgrounds, Masterton. At the AGM we said farewell several executive committee members and welcomed 3 new people to the team. Those stepping down were Marc Robertson, Sam Tipping and myself. doing so well in the industry!
