B+LNZ is a partner in the Pastoral Greenhouse Gas Research Consortium (PGgRc), alongside AgResearch, DairyNZ, DEEResearch, the Fertiliser Manufacturers' Research Association, Fonterra, PGG Wrightson Ltd and Landcorp. The board includes Andrew Morrison, B+LNZ Farmer Director for the Southern South Island.
PGgRc has produced internationally acknowledged research on the production of methane and nitrous oxide from grazing livestock as part of the most comprehensive programme of its type in the world.
B+LNZ's first environmental farm, Onetai Station, will work with PGgRc to look at the emissions intensity in a sheep and beef farming system. As a result of this, the effects of PGgRc research on animal performance will be assessed in real farm systems.
