Pasture Summit was established in 2017 by a group of progressive and committed farm business owners and dairy sector experts from across New Zealand and Ireland.

In November 2018, Pasture Summit conferences were held in both the North Island (Hamilton) and South Island (Ashburton).

The objective was to bring together a positive and vibrant community of farmers, to secure a profitable future, for this and the next generation of dairy farmers and our dairy stakeholders.

Thanks to those who attended our November 2018 events.  Please select the PASTURE SUMMIT 2018 EVENT menu option above to access the material from these events.

Pasture Summit also held two field days in Spring 2019, kindly hosted by farmers who spoke at our November 2018 conference (Pete Morgan and Greg Roadley).

Our North Island field day at Morlands Farm on 19 September 2019 and our South Island field day at Roadley Farms on 2 October 2019 were both a great success. Thanks to our host farmers, our generous sponsors, our facilitators from DairyNZ and a big thanks to everyone who attended.

We have produced a series of informational videos on the following topics:
– Farm Management Moving from Autumn to Winter
– Financial Planning & Budgeting
– Breeding Today for the Cow of Tomorrow
– Farming for Profit and the Environment *** NEW VIDEO JUST RELEASED IN APRIL 2021 ***
which can be viewed by selecting the VIDEOS menu option above.

Due to Covid-19, the Pasture Summit conference which was due to be held in Ireland in 2020 and the Dairy Exporter/Farm to Farm Tours tour from NZ to Ireland had to be postponed with future dates to be announced.
