If there is ever a need for undue extended period due to extreme weather or an act of god the farmer will need to provide a written explanation to the certification body. In Southern Pastures’ existence this has never needed to happen, however with climate change we have this available to us for animal welfare reasons or to comply with regulatory consents.
As it applies to humans, exercise, muscle development and fitness make for a long and happy life. Our cows are fit and healthy walking the laneways to and from the dairy shed.
Even though they are naturally herd animals, there is plenty of space to naturally socially distance in the pastures.
