1. Pangborn, Marvin C. Growth and innovation in the Canterbury dairy industry.

Degree: 2012, Lincoln University

This thesis reports an investigation of factors that have influenced the growth and development of the Canterbury dairy industry over the period 1982-83 to 2009-10. The research initially utilised secondary sources of information to determine physical and financial growth parameters of the industry. In-depth qualitative interviews relating to the production sector were then undertaken with fifteen producers and six key informants. A further thirteen key informants were interviewed from the processing industry. A mail survey of farmers was also conducted to further identify key innovation and adoption influences. The research lens for these investigations was informed by industry development theory and innovation theory. The development of the Canterbury dairy industry has resulted in a major land use change. In 2009-10 there were nearly 200,000 hectares in dairy farming in Canterbury compared with fewer than 20,000 hectares in 1982-83. During this period, milksolids (milkfat + protein) production grew from 2% to 17% of New Zealand’s increasing production, which was a 25-fold increase. Farm size and cows per herd in Canterbury have grown to twice the NZ average, with Canterbury farms grazing 15% more cows per hectare. Milksolids production per hectare was 1.5-fold the North Island average in 2009-10, whereas in 1982-83 it was 81% of the North Island average. An analysis of profitability from secondary data showed that income and expenses per kilogram of milksolids were similar throughout the country, but because of higher levels of production per cow and per hectare in Canterbury, the operating surplus per hectare was greater. The same data suggest returns on capital were double the rest of the country from 1999-2000 to 2009-2010, averaging 9% versus 4%. The analysis of a case study farm established in 1987-88 showed an average compound return on total capital in excess of 10%, and wealth creation of approximately 20% per annum (compounded in constant value dollars, 2010). Interviews with industry informants determined that there were three waves of development. In Wave 1 (1980s) farmers tended to be driven more by entrepreneurial motives and were often moving from another dairy region that was not as favourable. The ability to purchase larger blocks of irrigated land at a lower cost than in other dairying areas was the main driver of the move to Canterbury. There were also human elements, as Canterbury was perceived to offer desirable social aspects and many were attracted to the challenge of developing a new industry. Considerable entrepreneurial profits were achieved. In Wave 2, (1990s) many conversions were completed by corporate entities. Due to low operating profits the corporate farmers had largely left the industry by the late 1990s. In doing so, they sold many of their farms to their sharemilkers, thus creating a new generation of farm owners. However, there were also traditional sheep/crop farms converting to obtain higher levels of profitability in Wave 2. Wave 3 (2000s) farmers tended to be established…

2. Coghlan, Shannon. An evaluation of voluntary environmental schemes used by the dairy industry in Canterbury, New Zealand.

Degree: 2015, Lincoln University

Internationally, there are increasing concerns regarding the environmental impacts associated with intensive dairy farming. However, few studies have determined the characteristics of these approaches in the agricultural industry, or their effectiveness. A comprehensive literature review was undertaken to determine what the desired attributes are or design features which are required to form an effective scheme. From this, the study examines voluntary dairy schemes adopted by the Canterbury dairy industry in New Zealand against the desired attributes of environmental schemes found in the literature. Eight environmental dairy schemes were reviewed against six key design categories of an effective scheme that were identified. The study strived to assess the consistency of voluntary schemes design through focusing on scheme’s inclusion of particular attributes in their design. This was achieved by using content analysis, utilising NVivo 10 software and evaluating the schemes in terms of their 1) environmental focus, 2) goals and objectives, 3) measurement mechanisms 4) incentives and benefits provided and 5) involvement and communication with other parties. The main findings of the study were that there was a significant focus on nutrient management issues, lack of incentives and benefits provided and the wide use of third parties for monitoring. This study has the propensity to inform the policy makers on design of an effective voluntary scheme for the dairy industry. The results of this study identified ways in which New Zealand dairy farming voluntary schemes can be improved toward increased sustainability within the New Zealand dairy industry.

3. MacNamara, Marin Anne-Elise. Factors influencing agro-environmental regulatory compliance behaviour on Canterbury dairy farms.

Degree: 2016, Lincoln University

The Canterbury dairy industry has grown significantly in the past several decades in both the number of cows being milked and effective farming area. The industry has seen substantial growth in farm size, productivity and intensity. These increases have the potential to significantly impact the environment. Environmental regulations were implemented under the Resource Management Act (1991) to limit and mitigate the impacts of agricultural production, among other sectors. Compliance with environmental regulation as it pertains to effluent management on Canterbury dairy farms for the past several seasons has remained around 70 per cent upon first inspection. This research examines the factors influencing effluent consent compliance and the impact of their relationship on compliance. Understanding the factors influencing compliance behaviour is key to further developing efficient and effective regulation. An email-based electronic questionnaire collected quantitative data from Canterbury dairy effluent consent holders. The questionnaire was distributed to 513 consent holders, representing approximately 70 per cent of consents, for whom valid email addresses were available. A 14 per cent response rate was achieved. Data was analysed utilising SPSS 23. The results reveal insights into consent holder attitudes and perceptions and provide 11 statistically significant relationships between explanatory variables and compliance levels in the bivariate analysis and four significant relationships in the logistic regression analysis. These explanatory variables included: training workshop and farm group meeting attendance; farm size; amount of milking livestock on farm; the response to which group in society should have the primary responsibility of managing the environment sustainably; perception of the ease of access to information on compliance requirements; the perceived impact of non-compliance on reputation; the perceived ease with which the regulatory agency can detect non-compliance; the rating given for the regulatory process and inspections; historical non-compliance; and confidence in their ability and intention to comply at their next inspection. Recommendations provided to ensure a high level of, and an increase in compliance included an updated compliance rating system, leveraging communication tools and the ongoing development of a collaborative and education-focused strategy.
