Included in the field day program will be discussion about power tariffs and nego- tiating energy contracts, which most dairy businesses will soon be eligible to do. The speakers will also com- pare the costs of energy per kilogram of milk production to find out just how producers are situated. New technologies to improve energy efficient will also be looked at. Participants will then be given a walk-through of farm irrigation and dairy shed oper- ations to find out what they can do to reduce their power costs. The field days are free and each one will run from 10am- 2pm. A barbecue lunch and morning tea will be provided. The field days will be held in the following locations: December 7, Stephen and Karen Fisher's farm, 321 Black- wood Rd, Togari. December 8, Simon Bennet's property, 670 Bass Highway, Elizabeth Town.
