What is a Future Farm?
The intention of a Future Farm is to demonstrate to farmers, and others, how new technologies and systems impact performance, while maintaining the highest production standards within a leading environment footprint.
Five Focus Areas
Over the next six months, the Lanercost team will focus on these five areas, giving other farmers an insight into how they could take these opportunities and challenges and use them at their own farm.
The Future Farm fits into Beef + Lamb New Zealand's Farming Excellence Strategy as a key piece to helping farmers understand how new technology and practices could play a role on their own farm. Farmers have access to the information from Lanercost through this website, annual fielddays and B+LNZ's e-dairy.
“The organisation’s vision for the Future Farm was to inspire vibrant farming communities by demonstrating farming excellence. This aligns with the organisation’s wider strategy and vision of “profitable farmers, thriving farming communities valued by all New Zealanders.”
