Environment Canterbury announced today its approval of a farm environment plan template for the beef and lamb industry under the proposed Land & Water Regional Plan. Acknowledging the quality of the template, Environment Canterbury Chief Executive Bill Bayfield said Beef + Lamb New Zealand had met all the requirements of Schedule 7 of the proposed Land & Water Regional Plan.
The two new trustees appointed to the New Zealand Farm Environment (NZFE) Trust bring plenty of experience and enthusiasm to the table. NZFE chairman Simon Saunders says it’s a privilege to welcome Warwick Catto and Bruce Wills to the NZFE Board. Warwick Catto is Science Strategy Manager for Ballance Agri-Nutrients – the main sponsor of the Ballance Farm Environment Awards (BFEA).
