The Business Info

DataLinker takes away the pain of data sharing across the primary sector, by providing you with a simple, streamlined service which:

  • Manages farmer permissions
  • Simplifies licence negotiation and agreements
  • Standardises data sets, formats and transfer protocols

Our mission is to get data moving across the primary sector – so you can access information to improve your service, and so farmers can direct information into the tools they use.

DataLinker is a membership community – our members collaborate on a common mechanism for data transfer that benefits farmers and the primary sector value chain.



Info where you need it when you need it

  • No re-keying, uploading
  • Less hassle
  • More time


Efficient, multi-party data transfer

  • Improved traceability
  • Improved procurement
  • Improved supplier relationships


Larger, complete data sets

  • Compliance made easy


An annual subscription will be charged for each data service that provides data (Provider) and for each data service that receives data (Consumer). (A single service which both provides and receives data will be charged two subscriptions.)

DataLinker Ltd is owned by the industry – Beef+Lamb NZ and DairyNZ are joint shareholders. We’re charged with being commercially sustainable, but there is no requirement to drive profit and deliver a financial return for our shareholders.

The DataLinker annual subscription of $3,500 + GST (if any) is set to cover the operational costs of DataLinker Ltd – so that over time as more members join DataLinker, the subscriptions may be able to be reduced.

Connection Fee

From 1 June 2018, organisations connecting to DataLinker will be charged a one-off onboarding fee of $5,000. This covers the technical and business support provided by DataLinker to each new member as they prepare for connection.

Join before June 2018 - no connection fee

We want members to commit early and build value for the whole community, so there’s no connection fee if you join DataLinker before June 2018.
