Best Practice Farming
Ngāi Tahu Farming have invested in best-practice technology on their Te Whenua Hou dairy farms.
- NIWA weather stations
- Soil moisture indicators
- Variable rate pivot irrigators
- GPS-tracked fertiliser
- Three-phase effluent systems
- Hi-tech dairy sheds.
These technologies collectively gather data that helps inform farm managers about the productivity of the dairy farm and importantly, the impact on the environment. Farm managers use this data to make decisions on the usage of water and nutrients and the care of their cows.
