    The Government's thrown more than 25-million-dollars into a dairy innovation programme


    Agriculture minister Damien O'Connor's launched the Resilient Dairy programme at Fieldays this morning.

    The seven-year programme aims to drive improvements to the national dairy herd, and bring change to sustainable milk production.

    MPI will invest 10.3-million-dollars into the programme, alongside 11.2-million from the Livestock Improvement Corporation, and 4.2-million from DairyNZ.
