    Farmer calls to dump the Government's winter grazing rules, are growing in Southland

    Farmer calls to dump the Government's winter grazing rules, are growing in Southland


    A Southern Advisory Group recommended in December that national freshwater standard rules - for cow hoof marks in paddocks and re-sowing dates - should be removed.

    DairyNZ chairman Jim van der Poel says the group's more practical ideas focus on critically wet parts of farms - and they're still waiting for the Government to support them.

    He says the Government doesn't appear to be purposefully dragging its feet on a decision, but farmers still need direction so they can get on with their lives.
