Beef + Lamb New Zealand Genetics is on a mission to give breeders and farmers the tools to produce great-tasting beef backed by a strong environmental story, while at the same time improving production efficiency.
The Informing New Zealand Beef (INZB) programme is a seven-year Sustainable Food & Fibre Futures partnership supported by the Ministry for Primary Industries and B+LNZ, which aims to boost the sector’s profits by $460m over the next 25 years.
The objectives of the programme are to:
Stud breeders and commercial farmers are an important part of the INZB programme. If you’re interested in being involved, or for more information about the opportunities available to breeders and commercial farmers please see our Opportunities for Farmers section. It provides information about Next Generation Herds and our across-breed Beef Progeny Test.
As part of an annual survey, we’re asking beef farmers, stud breeders and rural professionals for their views about beef genetics and available tools in the industry.
It's an important way for us to measure changes in views and the uptake of genetic tools in the industry over time. It also helps to inform our activities within the INZB programme.
So please do take the survey (even if you did it last year). It takes less than 10min and all entries can be in to win a $100 Prezzy Card.
