RECORD DAIRY prices contributed to Landcorp's net operating profit of $30 million for the year ending June 30, 2014, up from $13 million from the previous year.
WITH LANDCORP eyeing the potential of dairy sheep, the United States could be to our sheep industry what China is to dairy cattle, opening a bold new chapter for New Zealand's most numerous farmed animal.
A VISION FOR the Landcorp to transform New Zealand farming has been unveiled by it chief executive Steven Carden, 10 months into the role.
STATE-OWNED FARMER Landcorp is seeking to make subtle but significant changes to its strategic direction.
LANDCORP HAS done another deal with the Chinese company Shanghai Pengxin – this time to help develop a giant sheep farm.
SEVERAL HUNDRED hectares of one-year-old pine trees are to be mulched to make way for pasture and then herds of dairy cows. The reason: the low cost of carbon credits and the higher returns from dairying
Landcorp Farming expects substantial further growth in last year's record dairy production, through the joint venture with Shanghai Pengxin of China and enlargement of established dairy complexes including Wairakei Estate in the central North Island.
A programme of improvements on the Crafar farms will begin as soon Chinese company Shanghai Pengxin can settle on the properties.
