Taieri Discussion Group

Want to know what local research is happening on your doorstep?

Welcome 2021, first group of the New Year is at Duncan and Anne-Marie Wells discussing a Research Program they have partnered with DairyNZ on along with a look at how they are set up for the Autumn.

Duncan and Anne-Marie and their farm team are partnered with DairyNZ/AgResearch in a program called the Participatory Farm Project. This project is run alongside research the Southern Dairy Hub is underway with and includes 3 other farms in Southland. The project measures some environmental farm KPI's like total Purchased Nitrogen and total farm Greenhouse Gas Emissions, how these farms currently compare and what different management styles do to each farms footprint.

This farmer group discusses and analyses the host farmer's system in order to identify opportunities and solutions that meet the host's future goals.

We also discusses seasonal issues and challenges that are affecting all farmers.

This Discussion Group is open to anyone involved in dairying or dairy related agri-business.

Come and join the discussion.
