World Suffolk Congress Tour, New Zealand



This exciting eighteen day tour travels to all the main centres of New Zealand and incorporates visits to the top Suffolk farms while including all the wonderful sites of New Zealand.

The inaugural World Suffolk Congress and Tour will be held in New Zealand in 2009.

Organised by the New Zealand Sheepbreeders Association, the Congress will attract Suffolk sheep breeders from all over the world.

Arthur Blakely, World Suffolk Congress Organising Committee Chair says, “Not only will likeminded people from around the world get to know each other while visiting New Zealand’s leading Suffolk stud farms, they will also have a chance to enjoy a guided tour of our beautiful country.”

The tour, which will include both the North and South Islands, will commence in Auckland on Tuesday 27 October 2009. It will finish on Friday 13 November 2009 in Christchurch with a visit to The Royal Agricultural and Pastoral Show. The Royal Show is the largest sheep show in New Zealand with over 1000 sheep exhibited.

“October/November is a beautiful time to visit as it is springtime in New Zealand,” said Arthur Blakely, “This tour presents a wonderful opportunity to holiday in New Zealand while sharing knowledge for the future benefit of the Suffolk breed.”
