Fert Focus Podcast Episode 1: Review of the Align Farms Regenerative Trial and Miah Smith’s Atiamuri Regenerative Farm Webinar

Episode One of Fert Focus presented us with two fantastic opportunities to review the farming practices of Align Farms in Ashburton, New Zealand and Miah Smith’s Wilith Farm in Atiamuri in the Central North Island. Align Farms are 2 years into their Trial conversion and Miah has transitioned his entire farm, over 4 years to a regenerative model.

Prior to recording the podcast Align Farms released their trial revision and data making for some interesting discussion points. They are running a 1/2 conventional and 1/2 regenerative trial on their Clareview Farm and documenting and comparing the results. 2 years in it makes for an interesting comparison.

For Miah Smith and his farm, the change to a regenerative model is complete and some of the changes are startling. From reducing to a once-a-day milking model Miah has created a farm that is more profitable, more environmentally friendly with happier and healthier cows and happier and healthier workers.

We look at the comparisons between the two systems, how the Tow and Fert has assisted both farms in making the change, and discuss how farmers can begin their own journey of change by testing and measuring what they do through trials.

On Fert Focus we want to ensure we cover topics that Tow and Fert users and farmers want to know more about so please let us know your thoughts and what interests you so we can find the people you want to hear from to learn more about improving our farming systems. Email [email protected].
