Table 15 New Zealand FarmIQ project summary

Project name Objective of project
Programme management and key indicators To ensure that projects and sub projects all work toward achieving the key performance indicators. These indicators will be a measure of the successful implementation of the programme as a whole.
Market analysis To develop capability to identify and understand markets which are willing and able to pay a premium for quality products and develop products to meet their individual specifications.
IT and database To be a catalyst for the establishment and operation of a data collection and analysis mechanism able to support animal specific performance analysis.
Genetics To develop new genetic and genomic capabilities to enable the identification, isolation, and selection of desired animal traits to improve the ability to produce products to customer/consumer specification.
Processing To put in place the necessary traceability infrastructure and develop new technologies and capabilities to enable meat yield and quality information to be collected during processing.
Farm productive capacity To drive improved on-farm production and performance through best practice production systems, capturing data (both farm and animal centric) and aligning this with the integrated value chain.
