Pasture Summit

Pasture Summit was established in 2017 by a group of progressive and committed farm business owners and dairy sector experts from across New Zealand and Ireland. With a wealth of experience and knowledge on our organising committee, Pasture Summit events are organised and run by farmers, for farmers and supported by dairy industry research and extension leader (DairyNZ).

In November 2018, Pasture Summit conferences were held in both the North Island (Hamilton) and South Island (Ashburton). The objective was to bring together a positive and vibrant community of farmers, to secure a profitable future, for this and the next generation of dairy farmers and our dairy stakeholders.

The 2018 Pasture Summit conferences were the first events of their kind in New Zealand with an ongoing connection to an international network. These were followed up in 2019 by two field days, hosted by farmers with technical input from dairy sector specialists, sharing ideas and developments on achieving profitable food production from grass. Since then, we have enhanced our digital engagement offering and produced a series of informational videos on relevant and topical themes for the dairy sector.

This year, Pasture Summit NZ & Ireland have been working together on an exciting joint forum to be held this July on the topical and relevant theme of “Pasture Fed Dairy & Water Quality – Is pasture still the way forward?”
