Dairy farming’s been part of our proud farming heritage from the beginning, but innovation and technology has completely transformed it.
As the world’s biggest exporter of dairy products, we produce 21 billion litres of milk for processing each year.
Our quality products are in demand because we’re blessed with productive land, healthy livestock and smart, switched-on farmers and professionals – over 49,000 of them.
The industry’s up-skilling people and creating quality work environments, so it’s a great time to be part of a world leading industry enhancing the way dairy operates.
At Primary ITO, we keep a sharp eye on changes to ensure we are a value-adding partner and can deliver the workforce required for future growth.
The people challenge for dairy farming
Dairy farming is about people. It is people who operate the farm, make the decisions, and ultimately make farming successful. As an employer, you must ensure that these people are equipped with the right skills, and maintain and use those skills in the most effective way possible. As farm systems become more complex and technology-driven, peoples skills must also grow and adapt. Our courses can help.
Filling the processing pipeline
Our country’s the world’s largest exporter of dairy products and global demand is growing. Processing plants require a sustainable pipeline of talent; staff that have the right skills and who are ready for the new opportunities ahead. Most of these opportunities involve upskilling staff already in the workforce. Take a look at our dairy processing courses.
