New Zealand's dairy industry is so reliant on internationally produced supplements that production and profitability would be impacted significantly if this food supply was interrupted. New Zealand-grown supplements could free us from this reliance, but the transition will be slow. This article summarises the results of a Rural Professionals Fund project that aimed to determine the productivity, profitability and sustainability impacts of removing all internationally produced supplements (IPS) from New Zealand dairy farming systems.
