In high performance animals it is hard to satisfy both the high energy requirements to support milk production and get enough physically effective fibre in the diet to support rumen health. In
The new National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020 (Aug 2020) (NPS) sets out the objectives and polices for freshwater management under the Resource Management Act 1991.
