Recent developments in the technology for storing, retrieving and communicating data have lead to the possibility of greatly expanded data sharing. The advantages of extended data sharing in the animal based industries of New Zealand include the possibility of conducting research studies previously considered not feasible because of the resources required to collect and collate the needed data. With the sharing of information between farms, Government agencies, research institutions, servicing organisations and advisory services, it is possible to foresee research studies of considerable benefit to the primary industries in New Zealand. This paper will examine the concept of shared information and provide illustrations from the New Zealand Industry of the research potential.
