Know Your Numbers – Feilding

Steps to a future fit farm system

Profitability should inform any farm decision and it's critical that we have the capacity to adapt to our environmental commitments.  DairyNZ, together with Fonterra, want to help you clarify what the key numbers are for your business – both profit and environmental - to be future fit.

In October Fonterra released their new Environmental Report to each of their suppliers which contains a Nitrogen Risk Scorecard and Greenhouse Gas Assessment.

This event will provide:

  • The latest changes and timelines relevant to your business for environmental changes relating to He Waka Eke Noa and Essential Fresh Water policy
  • Your local Fonterra Sustainable Dairy Advisor will give clarity on the importance of these numbers going forward and how to practically apply them to your thinking about the future
  • Regionalised benchmarks to highlight where your current farm system compares for operating profit, nitrogen, and methane emissions and scenarios

Local farmers will also give their perspective on what they are thinking about the changes and how they are preparing to adapt.  They will provide insights into positioning themselves and their business goals moving forward.

Please bring your environmental report with you. 

Lunch will be provided, please RSVP to this event by emailing kim.marcus@dairynz.co.nz or call/text your local consulting officers Charlotte Grayling 027 355 3764 or Janine Swansson 027 381 2025.

If you do not supply Fonterra this session is still relevant to you.  You can also contact your local Consulting Officer if you would like to discuss this further.
