Videos Highlight Sustainable Deer Farming

NZ Landcare Trust Media Release

For immediate release

Videos Highlight Sustainable Deer Farming

NZ Landcare Trust has been working with deer farmers to capture examples of excellent sustainable land and water management from around the country. This information has been distilled into fifteen short videos that are now available to view online. The final five videos from Waikato and Southland join the ten previously released (Hawke's Bay and Canterbury) to create an informative video based resource.

NZ Landcare Trust's Regional Coordinator Janet Gregory said, "I'd like to thank the deer farmers who welcomed us onto their properties. They have taken the time to share some of the good management practices that they have put in place on their respective properties, demonstrating a proactive approach to addressing issues around the environment and water quality."

Agriculture in New Zealand is going through a transition, moving towards more sustainable production methods. The good news is many farmers are ahead of the game, already embracing change, and are in a position to share their experiences with others. That's what these movie clips are all about, providing practical information that other deer farmers can apply to their operations.

The movie clips were created as part of NZ Landcare Trust's three year Sustainable Farming Fund project to promote greater adoption of environmental best practice on deer farms.

All 15 videos can be found at www.landcare.org.nz/SustainableDeer
