Mid-Northern North Island
B+LNZ is working in Bay of Plenty and Waikato to help farmers improve their productivity and profitability.
Working for you
Your regional B+LNZ team are committed to helping you get the most from your farm.
- Extension staff provide information to farmers, to extend their farming knowledge and help them make informed business decisions. They organise field days and workshops, farm trials and technology expos. They put together printed handouts and online information.
- Economic Service staff collect the farm survey data for your region, which feeds into B+LNZ's economic reports and forecasts.
B+LNZ also has people working in areas like environment and policy, who promote the interests of farmers in your region.

Annual delivery plans
Each of the six B+LNZ regions has a local farmer council – voted for by you.
Every year, your Mid-Northern North Island (MNNI) Farmer Council works with your regional B+LNZ extension managers and your MNNI farmer director to develop a regional delivery plan, using feedback from the region’s farmers. The Farmer Council draws on their knowledge of local needs and priorities to choose from a range of programmes and allocate funds. As a result, you get the tools and services that have the most value for your community.
