Giant cow bell will ring in launch of Fonterra’s TAF today

A giant cow bell, crafted especially for the occasion, will be used to ring in the launch of Trading Among Farmers on the NZX at Fonterra’s Darfield site at midday.

Fonterra Southern Operations Engineering Manager, Greg Millane says the large stainless steel bell was based on an old cowbell and was commissioned with the help of Fonterra’s team at its Edendale manufacturing site. “It’s an exciting day for Fonterra. While the official launch will be held at Darfield, the Edendale team wanted to get involved and help our Canterbury colleagues celebrate the start of trading in style. Being Fonterra, we couldn’t look past a traditional cow bell, but we increased the size just a little to note the importance of the event.”

Southland-based farmer and Shareholders’ Councillor Philip van der Bijl has been chosen to ring the bell at midday on Friday as part of the opening.
