Beef + Lamb NZ to review investment in Sector Capability

Beef + Lamb NZ (B+LNZ) is seeking farmers’ views on its Sector Capability Programme.

Richard Wakelin, B+LNZ’s General Manager Innovation, says the review will consider farmer investment through B+LNZ in the Sector Capability Programme overall and its various activities.

“The review will look at B+LNZ investment in the current portfolio of activities, how these activities align with farmer needs and perceptions, and how they provide value back to the sheep and beef sector.”

The review will also consider future B +LNZ investment in areas not currently targeted.

B+LNZ has invested significantly in developing the capability of people in the sheep and beef sector, and attracting new participants, says Mr Wakelin.

“This has traditionally included leadership development, farm skills training, agribusiness management training, agriculture sector career promotion, school agriculture curriculum projects and the provision of a range of scholarship opportunities.”

The review will be completed by April with B+LNZ announcing the outcomes mid-year.

The first part of the review process will capture insights via survey and interviews.

“We are encouraging farmers to provide input into the review by completing the survey/submission available through this link: The closing date for the survey is Friday 22 February 2018.
