Grassroots Support

The TUX team appreciates the amazing support farmers have given us over the last 60 years and so we like to give back to the rural community as a way of saying thank you.

We sponsor and support many rural initiatives around the country. Two of our major sponsorships include NZ Sheep Dog Trials and The Highlanders Super Rugby.

THE HIGHLANDERS

TUX has been Executive Partner of The Highlanders and Major Sponsor of The Highlanders …

TUX has been Executive Partner of The Highlanders and Major Sponsor of The Highlanders Blimp for the last 2 years. Super Rugby is heartland New Zealand, no matter which team we support, the games bring us together for our favourite sport.

TUX is primarily targeted to sheep farmers, as the fuel for their hard working dogs. One third of New Zealand’s sheep population reside in the Otago / Southland region, so it makes sense to give back to this region and support The Highlanders franchise. No other stadium in New Zealand has the TUX Blimp, so the innovation of The Highlanders is difficult to match elsewhere. At each game the TUX blimp drops prizes for the crowd at Forsyth Barr stadium to catch.
