Fonterra has joined the South Island Dairy Demonstration Centre partnership. Lincoln University Vice-Chancellor Professor Grant Edwards says Fonterra’s participation will have far-reaching benefits for the partnership, and for the wider dairy farming sector. Complementing the existing partner expertise in extension, nutrient management, feed production, animal improvement, farm information systems and the overall management of high-performing sustainable pastoral dairy farms. Formed in 2001, the Dairy Demonstration Cent is a partnership between Lincoln DairyNZ, Ravensdown, LIC, AgResearch, dairy farmers and now Fonterra aiming to research and demonstrate the very best sustainable dairy production systems.
