Abstract

FarmIQ Systems Limited was established as a Primary Growth Partnership (PGP) between the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), the meat processor Silver Fern Farms and Landcorp Farming Limited. FarmIQ aims to create a truly integrated value and information chain for red meat from product back to farm. The major output of this partnership is the FarmIQ System ‒ farm management software developed in New Zealand for New Zealand farmers. Hill country farmers have historically been at a disadvantage compared to their lowland counterparts in terms of the ease of quantifying farm performance. The FarmIQ System is a cloudbased tool that addresses these challenges of scale and isolation. It allows all types of red meat farmers to plan, communicate, record, analyse and report information about land, feed and animals easily and accurately.
