  • S2, E6 Greg and Dansy Coppell - Repost

    2 NOV 2023 · When Greg and Dansy Coppell purchased their sheep and beef farm near Nelson they needed to do 30km of fencing on a shoestring budget – recycled vineyard posts were the ideal solution. Soon, neighbouring farmers were asking how they could get their hands on the cheap but perfectly functional posts, and Repost was born. Repost takes what was previously a waste product, posts ripped out of vineyards at harvest and left in piles, and repurposes them as a key on-farm input, at a fraction of the cost of a new post. A win for your back pocket, and a win for the environment.

At neXtgen Agri, the focus is on the pastoral livestock industries. It is a consulting and innovation business, predominantly genetics consulting, helping sheep and beef breeders breed and buy the best animals.

Welcome to Down to Earth, (previously From the Ground Up) a podcast brought to you by Young Country.

This is a podcast for the go getters, the big dreamers, the innovators of the primary sector.

I’m your host Rebecca Greaves, and we’re taking a closer look at people in the primary industries who have dared to think big, push the limits and give it a go in business.

We’ll be asking them what the catalyst was to take the plunge and make a change.

We find out how they got to where they are now, what they’ve learned along the way, and what their advice is to other aspiring agri-innovators.

So, settle in and listen up as we serve you a healthy dose of inspiration, motivation, and maybe even challenge your thinking a little.
