Background to RMPP Action Network
The Action Network was born out of the Extension Design project which started in October 2015 and will continue until July 2018. The main purpose of this project has been to test a range of extension approaches on-farm to work out which are the most effective in supporting practice change in a real-world environment.
It involves over 70 farm businesses and a range of rural professionals who are helping RMPP evaluate these different approaches.
Armed with the knowledge RMPP have gained from this project, an extension framework was developed and RMPP Action Network is now being rolled out nationally to the red meat sector.
What is Red Meat Profit Partnership
Red Meat Profit Partnership (RMPP) is a Primary Growth Partnership programme that is working to help the red meat sector increase productivity and profitability.
Funded by meat processors, banks, Beef and Lamb New Zealand and The Ministry for Primary Industries, RMPP works with farmers and sector businesses to develop, test and introduce new ideas, new technology solutions and new ways of working.
