OPTB MARCH 2020 ANNOUNCEMENT
During the past month, the Trust Board has focused on ensuring the continuity of the businesses we operate. The Audit Investment and Risk Committee (AIRC) is working closely with the General Manager and the Chair to ensure that day to day operations continue.
The AIRC has considered a COVID – 19 Outbreak Response Paper from the GM containing proposals in relation to the management of our farms and staff support over the coming months.
The AIRC and GM have resolved to move to once a day milking and to dry off the dairy herd early. This will reduce the workload on the farms and the risks to our staff. This has implications for our production targets, and revenue. It will mean our call for scholarship applications will go on hold for the time being.
Our office is closed temporarily with staff working from home.
The Board will continue to meet using online technology over the coming months and updates will be posted on our website.
