Thanks for visiting us to learn more about the best agri technology New Zealand can offer – to help you work smarter not harder.

New Zealand delivers the latest on-farm technology


Our agritech expertise is partnering with farmers to reduce their on-farm costs and make the most of their time, staff and capital.

We are continually developing smart new technologies that enable us to produce some of the best lamb, beef, milk, venison and wool products in the world.

From remote and rugged country stations to fertile valleys, our farms provide the perfect testbed for agritech innovations that are used around the world for all farming systems.

Real-life challenges have driven us to find new, more efficient ways of working on the farm. We have had to adapt quickly to stay in business in the face of high land, compliance and labour costs.

We have looked for practical solutions to grow great businesses that can help all farmers know the true benefits of using the latest technology - giving them confidence about what’s working on the farm and what’s not, and how to make necessary changes.

That makes us the best partner you could have to get the most out of your farm.

  • Farm management systems

    We are helping farmers around the world intensify their operations and set up automation, whether they are farming indoors or out.

    New Zealand agritech can improve efficiency across all farming systems – we understand the needs of Total Mixed Ration and Mixed Ration farming systems, and our technology is made to be used in both.

    From reproductive heat detection systems and herd improvement software, to dairy automation equipment, electronic milk meters, and specialised farm management software, our farm management technology is assisting farmers worldwide.

    New Zealand company LIC Automation provides world-leading innovations for the dairy industry, and is a leader in milk sensors and automation, with offices in the UK and Ireland . It specialises in manufacturing in-shed farm automation and sensor technology systems, with the aim of simplifying decision-making and increasing farm profit.

    We’re also home to Gallagher, the company that invented the electric fence. Its technology and farm equipment is used around the world – such as its sheep auto–drafter, which weighs animals as it drafts, and recently won a national agritech innovation award.

  • Pasture management

    New Zealand happily shares our world-class toolbox for pasture management with farmers around the world.

    Our agritech companies have developed a range of practical tools to help with decision-making and farm management to ensure the highest levels of soil health, animal health and environmental health.

    New Zealand even scooped the global 2016 Precision Farmer of the Year award. Canterbury farmer Craig Mackenzie won the award for his work to advance precision agriculture. His company Agri-Optics provides precision agriculture tools and services, with a focus on field sensing and special data to maximise nutrient and irrigation efficiency and improve farm sustainability.
