Trapping to help Whio back home

Kaiangaroa Pastoral Limited near Taihape is in a joint venture with River Valley Lodge and other neighbouring farms to reduce Stoats at Pukeokahu in hope that they encourage Whio (Blue Duck) back onto the Rangitikei River. Farm Managers Guy and Jennie Melville have put out 12 DOC stoat traps throughout the bush block and check them at least once a month.

At MyFarm Sheep & Beef we are thrilled with this initiative as protecting the natural environment is one of our underlying philosophies.
