9. Will less intensive farming be enough? Don’t some catchments have too many cows?
Yes they do. So it is a catchment-by-catchment issue – or even sub-catchment specific. Less intensive live-stocking by itself is not necessarily the only way to mitigate environmental damage. For example feedpads are a measure that can be used to more efficiently collect effluent and hence reduce the amount of destocking required.
