The supplement struggle

December 2022

New Zealand’s dairy industry is so reliant on internationally produced supplements that production and profitability would be impacted significantly if this food supply was interrupted. New Zealand-grown supplements could free us from this reliance, but the transition will be slow.

This article summarises the results of a Rural Professionals Fund project that aimed to determine the productivity, profitability and sustainability impacts of removing all internationally produced supplements (IPS) from New Zealand dairy farming systems.
