1. Farming for a lower footprint - what should we focus on?

    This article summarises a collection of DairyNZ co-funded studies on reducing dairying's environmental footprint.

  2. Fodder beet's effect on the liver

    What happens to a cow’s liver during the transition to a fodder beet diet? DairyNZ has been investigating.

  3. Investing your levy to lift pasture performance

    DairyNZ's levy-funded projects focus on reducing dairying's environmental effects, while improving pasture dry matter yield, quality and persistence.

  4. N surplus shows performance

    Nitrogen leaching varies significantly depending on soil type and climate, which means it’s not a straightforward performance indicator.

  5. Science puts couple on the front foot

    Facing the challenge of reducing nitrate leaching while remaining profitable has spurred Canterbury farmers Grant and Jan Early to take part in the DairyNZ-led Forages for Reduced Nitrate Leaching research programme.

  6. FRNL research reports

    The (FRNL) programme aims to reduce farming’s environmental footprint by improving nitrogen (N) efficiency of the animals and/or the plants used in dairy farming. Read the results from the programme here.
