Animal welfare early response programme

Healthy herds are essential to dairy productivity and we take the health and welfare of animals seriously

  • When farmers require extra support, Fonterra engages trained Dairy New Zealand animal husbandry extension specialists and rural professionals to assist.


  • Farmers through challenges that they may be facing with regard to animal welfare on farm.
  • While there are very few farms that come into this model, we find that most of those that do, have successful outcomes.


  • Fonterra seeks to provide the best support possible to its farmer suppliers around challenges that they may face.
