FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HighGround Dairy is delighted to announce the newest member of our Chicago team, Stu Davison, who brings a wealth of experience and a deep-rooted passion for the dairy industry to our organization. Stu’s arrival is set to significantly enhance our global dairy market intelligence capabilities.
A true Kiwi dairy farmer at heart, Stu hails from a long line of dairy farmers in the Waikato region of New Zealand, often regarded as the heart and soul of the country’s dairy industry. His upbringing in a family deeply entrenched in successful farming ventures instilled in him a strong foundation of business acumen and a keen awareness of the global dairy market’s importance.
Stu’s journey into the world of agriculture and finance began with his studies at Lincoln University. Afterward, he dedicated eight years to hands-on dairy farming, gaining invaluable insights into the practical aspects of the industry. This combination of education and real-world experience uniquely positions him to understand the intricacies of dairy farming, from both financial and operational perspectives.
Prior to joining HighGround Dairy, Stu spent three years leading the NZX Dairy Insights team, where he made significant contributions to the dairy industry’s knowledge base. His expertise in data analysis and market trends garnered him a reputation as a trusted authority.
Stu’s passion for New Zealand agriculture, combined with his financial market savvy, allows him to view the global dairy market from a privileged vantage point. His perspective is a valuable asset as he crafts unique insights for one of the world’s most influential dairy exporting markets, as well as across all key international dairy regions.
