A Waikato dairying farming couple, Dave and Sue Forsythe, have been confirmed as the top performing dairy business in New Zealand.

They received the supreme winner award at the BNZ Dairy Business of the Year 2009 Awards this week.

The Te Awamutu couple beat competition from 12 other dairy business finalists to take three awards including the top award, first place in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region and the high supplement farm systems category.

As part of their prize package, they will compete in a trans-Tasman Challenge against the 2009 Australian Dairy Business of the Year supreme winner.
