Abstract

Summary Our management philosophy is to try and reduce any limiting factors so that the farm, livestock, and the people are able to reach their full sustainable potential. This is done by: • Monitoring fertility, pasture, stock, technologies, and markets and then adjusting management plans accordingly • Matching the most sustainably profitable stock policies to the various land classes • Having a good team of staff and advisors, and ensuring they have the resources and guidance to do their jobs well • Ensuring this business makes reliable profits, some of which are used to improve the property for future generations of owners and also for environmental work, such as protecting bush and streams. As the saying goes 'You have to be in the black to be green
