Waikato Regional Council’s rural compliance team has resumed its monitoring of effluent management across the region’s 4000 dairy farms. “Weather conditions have been pretty good for irrigating, and we would have expected to see effluent being used effectively as a fertiliser,” said team leader Stu Stone. “But we’ve found one in 10 of the farms visited either has not got adequate infrastructure, or their management practices have slipped. If anybody wants advice, call the council on 0800 800 402.”
