RLF - Focus Farms - A Local Success Story
13 Dec 2011
Published To
Description

The Focus Farm project accelerates the capacity of dairy farmers to embrace natural resource management. This is achieved by creating whole farm management plans and executing environmental best practice actions they have integrated with profitable and productive farming. The Focus Farm groups meet ten times over a three year period and with a 93% retention rate have been a great success. Through the project farmers have completed nutrient action plans and planned improvements to effluent systems to combat salinity and soil acidification, established or increased shelter belts to increase biodiversity and made energy saving changes to reduce greenhouse emissions.
