Award-winning innovation on our campus farm
We’re pioneers of livestock performance, productivity and profitability, holding the Southwest Promar International Milkminder award. We’re also leading the way in crop biodiversity, as a base for ADAS’s environmental research plots.
You’ll benefit from one 400-hectare award-winning farming business across five rural sites that work with Muller, Farmer Fresh and RJ Kerr. Our main 72-hectare Home Farm is on campus, with four other farms nearby. You'll have plenty of opportunities to apply theory to practice, developing your expertise across the entire food supply chain.
Our farm is home to cows, calves, sheep and arable land. We boast exceptional facilities including a dairy bull-beef rearing unit, a 296-cubicle dairy unit and a Shearwell Te Pari Racewell HD3 Sheep Handler, which forms part of our Livestock Handling Project. Our land is helping to shape the future of crop biodiversity, as a chosen base for ADAS’s important environmental research plots.
