DairyNZ's farms are an important industry resource that provide "real farm" platforms that enable larger scale pasture and animal trials to be carried out. These farms effectively get research from the laboratory to the farm.
DairyNZ work with a number of organisations across the country to provide dairy farming information throughout the season. This valuable information is shared with New Zealand dairy farmers.
