REGIONAL OPTIMISATION DAYS

Regional Optimisation Days will be held on the DBOY17 Regional Winners' farms throughout New Zealand during October and November. These field day events are a great day out and an excellent opportunity to hear and learn from some of New Zealand's most resilient, sustainable and innovative dairy farmers. Attending these events provides the opportunity to see first-hand those farming principles that are applied on these high performing farms, and a perfect time to ask questions, share ideas, and to expand your own farm knowledge that could then be applied to your farming system.
These informative days highlight how award-winning farmers have obtained a resilient and profitable system, which is obviously one of the key ingredients to successful farming. As outlined in the DBOY purpose statement, there is also a focus on the environmental and people productivity at these events, which, along with the financial performance, demonstrates why and how these farming enterprises are sustainable businesses that perform year on year.
Remaining profitable during years of volatile milk payouts, while staying focused on environmental good practice, and supporting the people on your farm to perform at their best for themselves and for your business, are critical factors in remaining in business into the future.
Benchmarking across a number of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) is the only way to objectively assess your business performance against your peers. Come along to see how these farmers have used benchmarking through the Dairy Business of the Year, and learn new techniques from these top farmers to could be applied on your own farm.
