New Zealand Farmers have completed one of their busiest ‘moving days’ on record.

Traditionally on New Zealand farms, June 1 is the day when alot of farmers move farms or move their stock.

But what exactly is Moving Day and who’s involved?

In a nutshell, Moving Day, or Gyspy Day as it’s sometimes known, is the start of the dairy season.

It sees a large number of dairy farming families, shareholders, contract milkers and employees move to new farms.

This year an estimated 5000 farmers packed up and moved, according to statistics from DairyNZ.

And it’s not just people who will be travelling. In a number of situations, cattle and animals will also come along for the journey.

Despite its name, Moving Day often takes longer than just 24 hours.
