With the demand for sheep milk growing ... a Waikato milk processing plant is willing to collect new milk within a two hour drive.

Maui Milk general manager Peter Gatley says he hopes more farmers jump on board.

He says they now have the ability to supply the rams so farmers can start breeding the sheep.

He says everything else is readily available including the infrastructure, rotary platform and knowledge about nutrition.

Peter Gatley says it's an opportunity to produce a high end product for a high end price.
