The network is a programme supporting farmers to develop the confidence to turn ideas into on-farm actions.
Groups, made up of seven to nine farm businesses, are farmer-led and supported by trained facilitators who help guide and identify experts who can share knowledge and ideas needed to achieve on-farm goals.
B+LNZ South Island general manager John Ladley said there will be no change for participating farmers.
“Transitioning early allows us to explore how the network model works and how it can be integrated into our business. We are developing a plan to identify what this will look like post-September.”
B+LNZ will adapt the network to use alongside existing extension tools.
