This report outlines some of the complexities of the global grain and PKE markets and the associated risks with being very reliant on IPF. It demonstrates that it is possible for New Zealand to decrease its demand for IPF by lifting grain yields, growing more grain (especially on whenua Māori) and returning to dairy farm systems which are less reliant on imported feed. It also highlights how growing grain and cropping on dairy farms can help Aotearoa achieve its environmental aspirations whilst maintaining or lifting farmer profitability.
