Gotta love the Rugby world

The Taranaki Community Rugby Trust (TCRT) Farm Project has just completed its first full season of dairy production.

The TCRT held its inaugural ‘Field Day’ on the Inaha Road farm on 14 April 2010 and allowed TCRT Chairman Ray Barron and consultant Michael Joyce the chance to update and thank all of the valued supporters and sponsors on the success of the farm to date.

Following on from these speeches special guest and keynote speaker Steve Tew, CEO of the NZRU, addressed and answered questions from the crowd on all things rugby. The day was a great success and attracted over 100 guests; we look forward to this being an annual event.


The Trust is projecting a distribution of approximately $100,000 per annum to club and community rugby in Taranaki once it is fully established.

Farm Statistics:
160ha, 500 cows, Milksolids production 153,500kg milksolids.

Sponsorship from farmers, businesses and individuals has amounted to over $100,000 to date.

TCRT is seeking more cows and heifers for the 2010/11 season and are interested to hear from any businesses, organisations or individuals who would like to assist with this very worthwhile project.
