This year we will be featuring the following topics:
Riparian planning made easy
A new online riparian planning tool will help you fulfil supply and consent conditions. It’s an easy way of creating a management plan to fence, plant and protect waterways, even if you haven’t done it before. Our staff will be able to help create your own plan on site.
The planner’s built-in mapping tools and calculators help you to map your farm’s waterways and to estimate the costs around fencing, planting and maintenance. It enables you to spread the budget and tasks over a few years and make updates at any time. It even suggests plants that are suited to your region.

Create spare time with the roster builder
Discover our new roster builder that helps you to create farm rosters quickly and easily. You can customise it to your farm and you’ll soon be spending less time on staff schedules and more time on other jobs.
You can reduce inefficiencies by deciding on the best rotation for you based on how many staff you have. It’s just a matter of entering farm facts, adding parameters such as the number of staff to be rostered on each day and, with a click, workable rosters are created to share with your employees.

Finances – where do you sit?
Check out our new finance position and strategy resources. These allow you to find out where you sit in comparison to others and suggest management options that could help you improve your position.
We can take you through the range of DairyNZ financial tools to help assess your progress towards achieving your goals - whatever the stage of your farming career.
