About this report

This report is further to the initial study completed by AgFirst Waikato in September 2009.

The initial Integrated Catchment Management pilot project for sheep and beef farms focused on the assessment of the impact of reducing drystock farming operations to a level of 12kg N leached. In addition to this the farm systems were also assessed on the basis of what could be determined as “simple system changes” to reduce nitrogen leaching.

The initial project focused purely on nitrogen losses to the farming systems. The updated study has also included analysis and reporting of phosphate losses.  This report details farm visits to update current situation, and updates on practices and changes since the original study.
