New Zealand’s largest industry is farming or agriculture. New Zealand is the 8th largest milk producer in the world, producing over 15 billion litres of milk per annum. Livestock farming are the main categories followed by horticulture.
1880 was a significant year for dairy farming in New Zealand with the opening of the first milk-processing factories, followed by the introduction of the first milking machines in 1893.
Dairy farming regions are Waikato, Taranaki, Southland, Northland, Horowhenua, Manawatu and Westland.
Cattle were first brought to New Zealand in 1814 and very use full during the period for pulling heavy loads and of course meat.
A farmers life is spent outdoors and physically challenging, spending many hours doing hard labour.
Our New Zealand farmers are proud ‘number 8 wire’ orientated – or followers of the ‘do it yourself’ tradition. The ‘number 8 wire’ saying originated from a specific general-purpose type wire used in farming which solves many challenges in and around a farm.
A hands-on farmer needs to ensure his farm is up and running even if he is struck down by illness or injury.
We provide various insurance products including products designed especially for farmers.
