Haydn McKinley

Lower North Island Territory Manager

Haydn is orginally from a lifestyle block in the Hawkes Bay then he headed down to Lincoln University to study a Bachelors of Agricultural Science. This decision only growing his passion for the Ag industry and provided him with the scientific background to everything he would do on farm over the following 9 years. From University Haydn went on to work on dairy farms in the Dannevirke area before heading to the Manawatu to manage a 500 cow dairy farm at Foxton. Where he is still based.

Haydn love’s seeing farmers being able to maximise their production systems through the use of innovative and quality products, which has drawn him to Agilis and to make the switch off farm.

In Haydn’s spare time he can be found fishing up at Lake Taupo, walking the dog and spending quality time with his wife.
