About Extension 350

Extension 350, an initiative funded by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), Northland Regional Council, DairyNZ and Beef+Lamb New Zealand, is an innovative farmer led and farmer-focused mentoring and extension programme that aims to work with 350 Northland farms within 5 years to improve their on-farm performance and environmental sustainability.

Two dairy clusters and one sheep and beef cluster, consisting of 5 farmers each, have been set up. Each cluster runs for 3 years. 4 more clusters are planned for 2018, with another 3 in 2019.

The first group of Northland farmers have started working with mentor farmers to raise their on-farm productivity, sustainability and profit as part of the Extension 350 initiative.
