Public invited to Lincoln University Dairy Farm for Fonterra Open Gates Day

4/12/2017 2:30:00 p.m.


It is holding an Open Day as part of the Fonterra Open Gates Day which is highlighting how farmers, along with the rest of New Zealand, care about what is happening with our waterways and the environment.
 
It will show how dairy farmers are working to protect our waterway with the likes of specialised native planting, fencing to keep animals out of the water, nutrient management and irrigation efficiency.
 
The Lincoln University Dairy Farm is a demonstration farm, and its environmental work is based on the efficient use of nutrients on the farm, to provide examples to farmers and keep it out of rivers and streams.

The day also highlights the process of producing dairy products, and the journey from ‘Sunshine into Food’.
“We want to expose people what happens on a regular pasture based dairy farm and answer some of their questions around the detail in the science and technology of producing milk on farm,”  Ron Pellow, Executive Director of SIDDC, which operates the farm, said. 

 “LUDF operates as both a demonstration farm for other farmers, and a commercial entity.  We also have the stated aim to increase productivity on the farm without increasing the overall environmental footprint.  This makes the information that comes out of SIDDC very relevant for farmers and the farm the perfect place to open up to the public to show them how it all works.”

There will be a central marquee with information, displays, sponsors stands, dairy product sampling and giveaways (cheese, yoghurt, milk drinks, ice creams etc.)

 This is a free event.
