“My name is Stuart Lister, or some call me the ‘Silage Nerd’, Nutritech Area Manager for South Waikato, Eastern South Waikato, Central Plateau and Bay of Plenty.
I was bought up on a Jersey dairy farm in the Rangitikei then studied for a B.AgSc. from Massey University many moons ago before becoming a full time dairy farmer and breeder of registered Ayrshire, Holstein/Friesian and Jersey cows for 25 years. I have now been with Nutritech for nearly 17 years. My particular interest is in helping dairy farmers in my area to improve their Transition Management and Silage Quality.
I live in the beautiful Waikite Valley south of Rotorua. Apart from looking after a lifestyle block with a few cattle, sheep and chooks, I like to travel to catch up with my adult kids and grandkids in Australia and Norway. It’s a great trip when I can see my family, go to a Trance music event and catch an iconic race meeting!”
