DairyNZ, with support from Horizons Regional Council, invite both farmers and local community to a series of water quality updates within the region. Key speaker at each of the events is Logan Brown – Freshwater and Partnerships Manager from Horizons. Logan will provide the catchment water quality data (state and trends), and allow opportunity for discussion.
Water quality is improving in these catchments as a result of the actions of many stakeholders, both rural and urban. Come along to hear this very positive message, including the contribution of the dairy sector to this improvement.
On the basis of continuous environmental improvement, you will also hear how research is providing further opportunity to improve dairy systems. DairyNZ will introduce you to a “Future Farms” project within Horizons One Plan catchments - including a section on the use of Plantain to reduce nitrogen loss. Join us as we further our journey balancing environmental improvement and economic growth within your community.
