Business Objectives

Systems based around our people, our process and pasture is at the heart of the Dairy Holdings' business model.

This aligns with the overriding objective of maximising profitability by adopting systems that increase the quantity of pasture grown and harvested.

This business ethos is based on research conducted through Ruakura and more recently the Lincoln University Dairy Farm and Southern Dairy Hub that provides the base system for successful and profitable dairy farming. This system initially promoted by Dr C P McMeeken and subsequently by Dr Arnold Bryant, continues to be supported using high comparable stocking rate systems by DairyNZ.
