Our unique place in the world makes us ideally positioned to grow great grass.
We’re lucky here, tucked far away from anywhere. We’re surrounded by clean air and bathed in rain and sunshine.
In New Zealand, we farm the way nature intended, with our cows naturally grazing on pasture.
Grass is a natural food source for cows, and New Zealand is one of the few places in the world where cows can graze on grass, year-round.
Our Fonterra New Zealand cows consume on average 96 percent of their diet as grass, which is well above the 92% minimum amount of grass in the diet of dairy cows across the Fonterra New Zealand milk pool as defined in the Fonterra Grass and Pasture Fed Standard.
