AgFirst has a wealth of knowledge and experience in project management. With the range of skills and coverage throughout the majority of the country we are well situated to take on projects of any size and locality. We have also been involved in cross-sector projects. Below is a list of some of the projects that AgFirst have been involved in at both a national, regional and office level.
In the absence of a beef marketing opportunity at the time of implementation, the group decided to explore and characterise the cost of capability for supplying beef to a discerning and high reward market.
The project is has three cluster groups of ~10,000 cows each in Northland, East Coast(NI) and South Otago and represents 75% of Landcorp’s 40,000 breeding cows.
The aim of the DairyPush programme is to have all participating farmers gain more farming and business skills as well and achieving a more profitable business. The target for the group was to increase the individual farm profit by 10% every year for 3 years.
Sally has been facilitating a Sheep and Beef Discussion Group which incorporates farmers from Aria/Mahoenui to West Waikato/Te Kauwhata. The group focuses primarily on a topic and may involve either an on-farm or off farm visit.
