New Rules – Intensive Winter Grazing Workshop

Intensive Winter Grazing is subject to new rules under the new National Environmental Standards for Freshwater Regulations 2020 (NES). These are national rules, so impact everybody who intensively grazes stock over winter.

If your intensive winter grazing practices cannot meet all specified permitted activity conditions you will require a consent. Importantly, if you have not wintered stock on your property within the past five years, a discretionary resource consent will be required.

NOSLaM is hosting a workshop with speakers from Federated Farmers and ORC to discuss:

  1. Intensive Winter Grazing defined.
  2. What is a permitted activity… how you can operate without a consent?
  3. What is a Discretionary Activity  Consent?
  4. What are Restricted Discretionary Consent conditions?
  5. Introduction to ORC’s approach to National Environment Standards  implementation
  6. An indication of the consenting pathway for Winter 2021.
  7. What does compliance look like for 2021?
  8. When: Thursday 3rd September, 2020
    Where: Weston Hall
    Main Street

    Time:  11.00am

    The presentation will be followed by a BBQ sponsored by Beef+LambNZ and DairyNZ.

    For catering purposes please RSVP to Rob by email at or on Mobile 021 194 9597 by Tuesday 1st September, 2020.
