Greenhouse gas

Emissions Profile

Get a breakdown of the three main greenhouse gasses on your farm with helpful advice on how you can manage them. With the Zero Carbon Act reduction targets coming, forewarned is forearmed! The greenhouse gas emissions profile is produced as part of your OverseerFM nutrient budget, then we can offer you suggestions for emissions reductions or generating carbon credits on your farm. Enquire for your price today!

Nutrient Budgets

Your nutrient budget is calculated using a computer programme called Overseer.  You can download the excellent Beef + Lamb NZ Overseer Data Template to get you started.

Farm Maps

A large part of your farm plan will be based on mapping. In conjunction with MapMyFarm, we can provide you with the basic maps you’ll need for your plan, or you could upgrade to a full farm mapping service with map pads, whiteboards, banners or framed copies for the wall. Enquire today for prices!

Catchment group support

Catchment groups

If you’d like help starting and running a catchment group, please get in touch. We can provide administrative support, templates for farm environmental plans, discounted Overseer Nutrient Budgets for group members and qualified facilitators who can help to complete and sign off the plans the group develops.

Group Workshops

We facilitate workshops around the country and can tailor something to suit you. We can provide the farm plan guidebook and workbook, as well as the maps you’ll need, then step you through how to use them in the group. Enquire for prices today!
