dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this report is to have a better understanding of the 50/50 sharemilking industry in 2013. The perception within the dairy industry is that the 50/50 sharemilking business structure is on the decline and not enabling sharemilkers to progress to purchasing their own properties or enter other business investments. Having been a 50/50 sharemilker for seven years, from the late 1980’s to mid 1990’s and having gained significant benefit from the system, I identified the need to ensure this unique pathway endures. Due to this interest in the succession of our industry, I investigated where the 50/50 sharemilking system stands today and provided some solutions for how it may develop in the future. The body of the report looks at the actual numbers today and the trends over the last decade. I also decided very early on in my research that there appeared to be, as I have termed it, a “natural progression bottleneck”. This in itself was having a significant effect on how the 50/50 sharemilking system was functioning. To illustrate this more clearly; I chose to survey 10 long term 50/50 sharemilkers from around the country. My findings were conclusive in that the industry needs to look seriously at its 50/50 sharemilking contract to more closely align itself with the current economic landscape, market changes and farm demographics.en
