Deer industry honour for NZ couple

Angie Fussell and Trevor Walton, former owners and publishers of New Zealand’s The Deer Farmer magazine, have been honoured for their “unparalleled” 30-year contribution to the country’s deer industry.

The couple received the NZ Deer Farmers Association’s premier award at a recent conference in Invercargill. They launched the magazine in 1979 as a joint venture with industry and sold it to Country-Wide Publications in August last year.
