Hauraki High Profitability
4 min read
The P3 Trust, established in 2012 by dairy farmers, aims to bolster the dairy sector on the Hauraki Plains and uplift the local community's well-being. A standout initiative of the Trust is its Monitor Farms; high-profit farms on the Hauraki Plains. They share vital insights through a weekly newsletter and annual field days, and also offer a P3 Annual Speaker Series and a P3 Education Series.
The P3 (Profitable Progressive Plains) Trust was set up with the purpose of increasing the wealth, sustainability and satisfaction of dairy farmers on the Hauraki Plains, and to lift the wealth and well-being of the Hauraki Plains community.
To achieve this, the trust facilitates educational opportunities through its P3 Education Series and the P3 Annual Speaker Series which is designed to make you think and bring the community together.
The most well-known work of the P3 Trust is its Monitor Farms with high-profit farms spread across the Hauraki Plains sharing their information through a weekly newsletter and a couple of fieldays during the year. The information reported is significant to all farmers wishing to optimise profit and move from a satisfactory operation to an optimal operation.
The weekly P3 Monitor Farms newsletter provides regular updates of KPIs local farmers can benchmark against. Reporting includes financial performance and evaluating some of the more experimental, and potentially unfamiliar on-farm practices.
The P3 Dairy Trust Facebook group will provide event information, weekly updates and more.
