Zero Carbon Bill workshops
DairyNZ and its Climate Change Ambassadors are encouraging all dairy farmers to engage with the Government in consultation on the Zero Carbon Bill. Consultation started on Thursday and runs for six weeks. DairyNZ is running workshops on climate change for dairy farmers throughout June. The Taranaki workshop is on June 21 and the Manawatu¯ one is on June 22. Farmers can register at www.dairynz.co.nz/ roadshow. Methane and greenhouse gases from the dairy sector make up 22.5 per cent of New Zealand’s emissions — and nearly half of its agricultural emissions.
