Know Your Numbers – Steps to a future fit farm system – Winton

Steps to a future fit farm system

Know Your Numbers

DairyNZ, in conjunction with Fonterra and with support from Dairy Farmer Environment Leaders want to help you clarify what the key the numbers are for your business – both profit and environmental to be future fit. We will provide the latest timelines relevant to your business for environmental changes relating to He Waka Eke Noa and Essential Fresh Water policy.

Profitability should inform any farm decision and is critical that we have the capacity to adapt to our environmental commitments. For relativity the day will provide:

  • Regionalised benchmarks to highlight where your current farm system compares for operating profit, nitrogen, and methane emissions. You will have the opportunity to identify how you compared to your region.
  • In October Fonterra released their new Environmental Report which contains each of their suppliers – Nitrogen Risk Scorecard and Greenhouse Gas Assessment. 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.
  • For farms supplying OCD, Mataura Valley Milk & Danone a concurrent session will be run to identify, calculate, and steer you in the direction of where to find the relevant information.

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.

All farmers welcome regardless of dairy company supply. If you don’t supply Fonterra this session is still relevant to you.
