Wherever you are in NZ, farmers can use a new feed planning service.
MPI and partner agencies DairyNZ, Beef + Lamb NZ, AgFirst and Federated Farmers, are
offering remote feed planning support to farmers and livestock owners in all parts of the
country, whether or not you have been directly affected by drought or COVID-19.
How it works
This service is based on the level of need and operates on three
1. In the first instance, we’ll work out how much feed you
need. A call to an industry or levy body will get you
a free stock take assessment of your feed planning
2. In the second instance, where it’s required, we can
offer more advice and practical support. An adviser will
help you understand what needs to be done and how
you can go about it.
3. Finally, we can also refer you to someone who can offer
more in-depth support. We can refer you to a farm
systems consultant, who can provide help over the
phone or visit if it is a serious animal welfare issue.
Please note this level 3 support is not free.
