Owl Farm KPIs

Owl Farm uses a Wagon Wheel concept to visually demonstrate its specified Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).  Each area has primary KPIs that we are striving to achieve, and which we measure performance against annually.  Some also have secondary KPIs which provide a range of topics that we measure on farm and share with the farming public.  This clearly demonstrates the tensions that exist between the different areas and allows us to look for opportunity to extract value as we consider changes in any area. This is essentially the whole concept of how Owl Farm is run.

Owl Farm’s Wagon Wheel KPIs are developed by its management and governance committees to ensure our aspirations are aligned with the future of dairy farm systems in the Waikato/BoP regions.  We set goals that collectively represent a sustainable farm business of the future.  Performance against these goals is reported annually and actions towards achieving the goals are discussed weekly in our farm walk notes.  The Wagon Wheel goals are reviewed regularly to ensure that they reflect world leading practice and comply with the ever-evolving regulations in the dairy industry.
