The New Zealand Society of Animal Production has been the major NZ forum for the presentation of research results on farmed animals including: sheep, cattle, dairy, deer and goats for over 50 years. 

Proceedings of the Annual Conference

Historically our proceedings have covered a wide variety of topics and species that are of interest to New Zealand farming. The majority of articles relate to sheep, goats, deer and cattle. Papers on fibre and meat production, growth physiology, genetics, reproduction, lactational physiology and animal health are normally the major subject headings.

Papers can be accessed online at the link below In 2018, The proceedings were transformed into the New Zealand Journal of Animal Science and Production

Occasional Publications

Occasional publications provide a summary on a given topic of animal production. The timing of these is generally on an industry need basis. This often coincides with new advances in a field or lack of available material on an emerging topic. Often they contain a large amount of material from papers presented at previous conferences. The purpose of these books is as a practical reference for advisors, scientists, students and farmers who intend to immediately use the information provided i.e. succintly worded and practical. These publications are often also used as teaching and reference material in undergraduate agricultural degree courses in New Zealand and overseas.
