NZARM co-ordinating intensive winter grazing

With intensive winter grazing (IWG) being in the spotlight right now, many organisations have mobilised into action. There is significant effort from councils, industry organisations and central government focussed on supporting uptake of good management practices and help ensure that environmental and animal welfare outcomes are being met. 

NZARM is to provide a central coordination role to provide clarity on wintering activities, timelines and events to help improve efficiency across organisations working on wintering practices. We are pleased to take on this coordination role.

The co-ordination role

NZARM is to provide support and coordination to the various organisations involved in IWG and take ownership for establishing connections and facilitating communication between stakeholders. NZARM will directly communicate out to stakeholders to provide clarity, support the aggregation and reporting of information and be a central point for IWG related queries. NZARM’s role does not include delivering on IWG targets, nor will we overlap any of the great work being done already. We want to provide as much value to the organisations working on IWG as possible.
