Fonterra CEO Miles Hurrell says its recently announced lift in the 2020/21 forecast farmgate milk price range is a result of consistent strong demand for New Zealand dairy.
Fonterra releases details of how it will pay farmers for producing sustainable, high quality milk as part of The Co-operative Difference framework.
The new collaboration is based around DSM’s feed additive product Bovaer, which effectively and consistently reduces methane emissions from cows by over 30% in non-pasture-based farming systems.
Fonterra and Nestlé are teaming up with DairyNZ to expand a promising plantain trial to help improve waterways and reduce on-farm greenhouse gas emissions.
Fonterra farmers have been receiving unique Greenhouse Gas emissions profiles for their farms – the first time such a tool has been introduced in New Zealand at scale.
