Dairy Effluent

We have just completed a series of presentations with DairyNZ, presenting the new Farm Dairy Effluent Design Code of Practice and Standards to industry people. Workshops were presented in Hamilton, Rotorua, Palmerston North, Ashburton, Invercargill and Whangarei. Others are to follow. This is only one part of a comprehensive programme that Dairy New Zealand and milk companies have underway. There are initiatives to upskill system providers, farmers and operators through workshops, field days and formal training. The Code and Standards were developed over the last couple of years in conjunction with Aqualinc Research, DairyNZ, Fonterra, MPTA and IrrigationNZ. The documents (and more) are available on the DairyNZ website. Click here>to go to the Effluent Code page. Development of the Code and Standards was stimulated by an Environment Waikato initiative to raise the standard of efffluent systems. Development was overseen by a steering group and technical advisory group. Steering Group
