MPI-Massey Industry Overview

  • MPI-Massey Sheep Milk Industry survey and promotional brochure.During October and November, Craig and Anh Nguyen from MPI’s  market intelligence group are hoping to visit each of the country’s  sheep milk producers. The aim of these visits is to gathering input for an industry promotional booklet which for release at next year’s conference. The booklet will include, we hope, brief profiles of all  industry’s sheep milk producers  covering  location, products, stock number, size etc. The booklet  aims to offer new entrant farmers a more detailed overview of the industry’s various farming models and systems than is current available in other literature. Craig will be in touch with the farmers and producers over the next few weeks to arrange short meetings.

Reminder: 2020 SheepMilkNZ Conference will be held at Lincoln University, Canterbury,  on Tuesday March 31 and Wednesday April 1, 2020. Further details to follow.
