In the winter of 2015, a Massey University study was undertaken to compare nutrient and sediment loss when cattle were fed at two different sites (paddock 9 and 12 at Massey's Tuapaka farm).
Two groups of 15 beef cattle were fed in the two separate areas (0.3 ha each) and were monitored for their movement during the six week study using GPS collars. The results from this study are currently being analysed and will be available shortly.
