livestock

Whatever type of livestock you run, there are economic benefits to be had from providing shade and shelter with native shelterbelts. Basalt to Bay undertook a groundbreaking project in 2014 which resulted in the development of the  EBONS (economic benefits of nature shelterbelts) report. For each industry, we distilled the key ideas from the EBONS report into a short summary, with the aim of making the information easy to get to without a lot of extras. We've also provided links to other relevant resources, some on our site and some elsewhere.
