Videos Highlight Deer Industry Best Practices

Following on from last years successful series of movie clips highlighting sustainable deer farming, NZ Landcare Trust is pleased announce a follow up series designed to provide a snapshot of the work deer farmers in Canterbury are undertaking to reduce environmental risks.

The 'Adoption of Best Practice' series consists of five videos with a particular focus on the management of water and how the featured farmers use sustainable farming practices to improve local waterways.

Each of the farmers also has to cope with drought conditions so the Trust gathered information from each and distilled it into a single video dedicated to this important subject. This should be of interest to a wide range of farmers.


1. Adoption of best practice: Managing drought


2. Adoption of best practice: Managing risks on a Canterbury extensive high country property


3. Adoption of best practice: Managing environmental risks in North Canterbury


4. Adoption of best practice: Managing irrigation risks in a dry climate


5. Adoption of best practice: Managing soil & water and riparian management


These videos are part of a three year Sustainable Farming Fund project to promote greater adoption of environmental best practice on deer farms. More information about the project can be found on the project page>
