Dung Beetle Innovations
Clean water & sustainability of pastoral soils.
Come and see a 320-million-year-old technology that is now available to NZ farmers!
A 400-cow dairy farm produces 3.7 million kilograms of dung a year. 2,000 sheep and 200 cattle produce over 2.0 million kilograms of dung a year. All that free resource needs to be buried underground benefiting you the farmer rather than washing off and degrading our water.
Come talk to us about how you can get dung beetles established and working for you. Dung beetles provide a range of ecosystem services, including; boosting pasture production, reducing pasture fouling, improved water quality, improved water infiltration thereby reducing surface runoff, suppressing livestock pests, improved soil fertility, biology and structure, and sequestering carbon.
