Dairy Environment Leaders’ forum held this week

Rural Exchange 10/12/2017

There is a wealth of experience inside Dairy NZ, including Dr Rick Pridmore.

With over 35 years’ experience specialising in nutrient management in our rivers & lakes as well as working for NIWA as an environmental scientist, Dr Pridmore joins Rural Exchange to discuss the Dairy Environment Leaders’ forum.

More than two hundred dairy farming leaders were in Wellington this week for the DEL forum – which brings together a network of dairy farmers who promote sustainability at regional and national levels.

Dr Pridmore says during the three day course, farmers learn how to work with regional councils, setting up catchment groups, and learn how to support and help their own local communities.

Watch the full interview with Dr Rick Pridmore above.
