This from Federated Farmers environment spokesperson Colin Hurst who says from August all pastoral farmers in Waikato and Southland over 20 hectares are being given 18 months to develop and certify new ‘Freshwater Farm Plans’. The Feds say this timeline is unachievable and the framework developed by the government is not going to be useful. Colin Hurst joins Mark Leishman on Round Up.
