    A fit and healthy farm business is the ultimate priority for many kiwi families and partnerships.

    Together with DairyNZ, we’ll introduce you to the Whole Farm Assessment approach, a process for analysing a farm system to identify and prioritise key issues, opportunities and options for change.

    Your key take-aways will cover:

    • Learn about the Whole Farm Assessment approach and the role it plays in helping your business go places.
    • Hear a farm business owner talk about their Whole Farm Assessment experience, areas of focus identified and the ongoing positive impact for them and their business.
    • Gain confidence to explore every aspect of your business performance to seek opportunities for improvement.
    • Have a go at a taster towards the Whole Farm Assessment on a chosen aspect of the business. We’ll take you through a farm fitness check-list.
    • Develop a tailored action plan with steps to close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.

    Anyone who has influence over the decision-making process within a farm business should attend. We encourage you to
    bring your farming partner/s along.

    The following are results DairyNZ have seen through completing the comprehensive Whole Farm Assessment:

    • Through financial and physical benchmarking farm owners identified potential to lift profit by $2,000/ha.
    • The farm owner’s goals for the future did not align with farm performance.  The strategic plan was re-written with much clearer financial and farm management targets to achieve the owner’s goals.
    • Benchmarking showed electricity costs at well above average.  They were over-irrigating and could save $1,150/month, reduce nitrate leaching and increase pasture performance by optimising irrigation.
    • Replacement heifers were entering the herd underweight so an improved approach to managing heifers was implemented, increasing overall herd performance.

    Time:

    10.00am – Registration

    10.30am – Start

    2.00pm – Finish
