I have been in the industry since 1983 and worked in Marlborough, Canterbury and South Canterbury as a livestock rep before moving into management roles since 2000 covering Canterbury and later the entire South Island.
I am married to Pip and we have two great children, Ollie and Kate. My interests are following the children's sports, family time and, of course, rugby.
I have been in the farming industry for the last 25 years, working on and managing properties throughout Canterbury & Otago. In the last 8 years I have taken on Operational Manager roles in large scale corporate farming businesses. I enjoy spending time with my wife Justine & three grown up children. My interests also include hunting, fishing & rugby.
Nick has been farming for the last 30 years based around the lower South Island, with the last 15 years based in the Waitaki. From management, to sheep contracting, to lease farming, Nick has experience in all aspects of the sheep and beef industry. Nick understands how important relationships are and enjoys seeing farmers thrive. Nick was co-coach of the North Otago Heartland team that won the Meads Cup in 2019. Nick continues to coach in various roles and pursues his passion for the sport, developing its upcoming talent. Nick is married to Tania, they have two children, both at boarding school in Dunedin. Family times revolves around sport or time at the lake.
I was born in Christchurch and have always been based around the Tai Tapu area. Since I can remember I have always had a very strong passion for the agricultural industry, especially working with livestock. After finishing school I worked on our family farm in Hawea before returning to Christchurch to work on cropping farms based in Kirwee and Rakaia. At the beginning of 2021 I started Lincoln University and completed a Diploma in Farm Management, finishing in November 2022. My keen interests outside of work include hunting, free diving as well as playing rugby and spending good quality time with friends and family. I really enjoy being a part of the Hazlett team and being involved in the stock and station industry.
