Winter grazing/ Forage crop grazing

Good environmental outcomes require good environmental practice. Farmers are already doing some great work in the environment space, but there is still much to be done. Managing winter grazing so it has minimal impact on waterways is an area that can be addressed with some forward planning and simple management tweaks.

Thanks to strong lobbying by B+LNZ and other industry partners, the Government has postponed the implementation of winter grazing regulations until 2022. Regional councils are still going to be monitoring environmental indicators to identify any issues around winter grazing.

Industry has prepared a joint checklist (PDF, 575KB) of things to go through this winter, and B+LNZ has fast tracked the roll out of the Forage Crop chapter of their Farm Plan to help you build your wintering plan, see more on the wintering workshops below.
