Adoption of Best Management Practices - Deer

Adoption of Best Management Practices - Deer

The deer farming industry across New Zealand has and will continue to benefit from this programme which is designed to increase adoption of best management practices.

NZ Landcare Trust is delivering this three year project entitled 'Adoption of Deer Industry Environmental Best Practice' with funding from the Ministry for Primary Industries' Sustainable Farming Fund.

This work will build upon aspects of the Deer Farmers’ Landcare Manual launched in May 2012. The focus will be on how to encourage a greater number of deer farmers to adopt the best management practices identified within the manual. This will be achieved through collaboration with industry partners and working directly with farmers.

The Deer Industry Focus Farm Programme will support delivery of the project along with the establishment of new groups in areas that are beyond the reach of the programme.
The Trust will facilitate sessions on good environmental farm practices, bringing together industry and agribusiness experts on specific topics where required.

NZ Landcare Trust has worked with deer farmers to capture examples of excellent sustainable land and water management from around the country. This information has been created into fifteen short videos that can be found here:
