You've already made one good call by coming here

Having a good understanding of what you're responsible for as a farm owner or a contract/sharemilker not only makes it easier to sort your insurance, but can really ease the pressure on the milker-owner relationship if things do go wrong.

Have the right conversations, early

FMG receives over 1,000 milk claims a year, so taking the time to understand your responsibilities to prevent any disappointment, or disagreements, is well worth it. We know how complex running a dairy business can be so it's important to have conversations about day-to-day management, what to do in the event of a milk loss and goals and objectives for the season early, with those who are going to be involved in your operations.

Set yourself up for success

It's important to use the right documentation to make sure everything is squared away. Our strategic and industry partners Federated Farmers and DairyNZ have the right resources to make sure your contracts and business partnerships are set up successfully.

You can also download DairyNZ's sharemilker checklist to make sure you've covered everything off.
