Getting back to our better nature

It’s no exaggeration; dung beetles can deliver New Zealand from two of its biggest agricultural challenges:

Clean water & sustainability
of pastoral soils.

As the industry grows, farmland usage is being intensified. Over 100 million tonnes of cattle, sheep and horse dung pile up every year. The run-off is steadily degrading our waterways, while the residual mess is infecting our animals and impoverishing our pastures.

The solution is right under our feet:

Dung beetles offer a remarkable natural solution to revitalise our pastures and can rehabilitate New Zealand’s waterways in as little as 23 years – if we act now.

The 40 000 000 year-old solution

Sometimes Nature knows what’s best.

In this case, it’s the humble dung beetle, evolved over millions of years.

Tests conducted abroad and locally prove that introducing dung beetles is a practical, sustainable and cost-effective way to alleviate many of the problems we face in farming:

SOIL

SUSTAINABLE GRAZING
REDUCE PARASITES AND PESTS
LABOUR AND MATERIAL COSTS
