Ruddle Dairies Laneway Rehabilitation

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe proposed project will reduce sediment and nutrient run-off from degraded laneways on the Ruddle Dairies property which sits in the headwaters of Arley Creek – a significant tributary of the iconic Obi Obi Creek. Well-constructed laneways significantly reduces pugging and subsequent erosion during high rainfall events. Nutrient and pathogen run-off to down-slope watercourses is minimised and livestock spend less time negotiating laneways resulting in less deposition of manure in non-productive areas. Livestock movement, health and dairy cleanliness is improved resulting in improved productivity.
