           Zealand Livestock Farm Awards.
           Beef And Lamb Award Judges Comments:
           • This is an impressive Angus stud with a consumer orientated breeding programme focused on using
            proven performance genetics to enhance commercial returns for buyers.
           • Soil limitations are well understood and management plans ensure the appropriate stock classes are
            utilised to minimise environmental impacts.
           • Significant wetlands and waterways are fenced and retired from pastoral farming to reduce
            sedimentation of waterways and provide a natural habitat for a range of flora and fauna.
           • Diversification of the wider farming family business into dairying, apiculture and hospitality is seen as
            a real strength of this business and part of a proactive succession plan.
