By being in an advance party you can get “More deer, heavier, earlier”.
Advance Parties are small groups of farmers working together to share their productivity challenges and come up with the answers. DINZ will provide people to organise the group to make sure each participant gets value out of their attendance, and will fund some outside expertise if it is required. But – The responsibility for changing lies with the participants.
To belong to an Advance Party you must:
1. Commit to measuring and sharing your production information
2. Commit to working with your group and making changes to the way you do business
3. Commit to sharing the results with your deer farming community.
DINZ will fund groups for up to three years. But your challenge might not take that long to resolved, or you might set your sights on longer term issues.
Advance Parties are supported by the Sustainable Farming Fund and Deer Industry New Zealand coordinates the programme
