Partners Networking to Advance South Island Dairying

Current Issues

 Issues SIDDC are currently focusing on:
  • Sustainable, profitable pasture based dairy farming
  • Environmental monitoring and protection
  • Improving the farms' water, nutrient and feed efficiency
  • Reproductive performance in large herds / high productive farms
  • Dairy support land / total farm efficiency and resource use
  • Development and use of 'eco-n' nitrification inhibitor technology to reduce nitrogen losses and increase pasture production
  • Mitigating the effects of clover root weevil
  • Reducing the farms' greenhouse gas footprint / emissions per kg milksolids
