The future of farming for Southland
The future of Agriculture in Southland is facing another
period of uncertainty, with the impact of covid19 and
its possible long-term effects not fully. However, some
indications are available regarding changing food
patterns, disruptive shipping routes and the logistics
of ‘just in time’ delivery that are being tested, border
requirements changing and continuing disruptive
technology changing the way consumers purchase
all forms of consumable goods including food. This
same uncertainty applies to the rest of New Zealand
agriculture. The arable, Dairy, beef, sheep, and deer
sectors are all trying to work through and prepare for
what this uncertain future may look like, and how it will
shape the future viability of farming enterprises.
