LIC is a farmer-owned agritech and herd improvement co-operative that provides a range of services and solutions to improve the productivity and prosperity of farmers. This includes dairy genetics, information technology, herd testing, DNA parentage verification and farm advisory services.
With origins dating back to 1909, LIC has a long history of providing world-leading innovations for the dairy industry. LIC invests over 5% of its revenue in research and development ($13.6 million in 2018-19 year), well above the New Zealand primary sector average of around 1%.
All LIC profit is returned to its farmer owners/shareholders in dividends or re-invested for new solutions, research and development.
LIC is proud to sponsor Dairy Women’s Network and support the development of women in dairying. We look forward to working with DWN to support learning initiatives and work more closely with rural women to understand how we can better support them to excel in their own businesses and goals.
