New Zealand has launched a $19.7 million programme with Dairy Goat Co-operative to grow the goat’s milk infant formula industry in the country.

Caprine Innovations NZ or Caprinz is a five-year deal that will see the co-operative work alongside New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

The initiative aims to grow research and farming capability and boost export revenue across the country’s goat’s milk industry to $265.8 million per annum by 2023.

The objective is also to develop innovative tools to enable all New Zealand goat farmers to measure and improve their performance, while ensuring any economic gains don’t come at the expense of the rural environment.
