       Environment Awards evening










       The Bayly family Waitangi sheep and beef property, Wairoa Station, won the Northland
       Regional Council Water Quality Enhancement Award, Predator Free Farm Award and
       Beef + Lamb New 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.
