Club chair, Bex Legat, said 20 members, almost all the 26-strong club, will be heading to Invercargill on July 5 to attend the 50th FMG Young Farmer of the Year awards presentation. Ms Legat said the win was particularly stunning because as far as she can recall it is the only time West Melton had entered the club competition. “Eighteen of us went to the presentation at the regional awards night, and the Club of the Year award was the last presented on the night. When our name was read out, we were really stoked.”

Ms Legat thinks the West Melton club had the edge over the ten other clubs in the Tasman region because of its involvement in the community. “We have a very enthusiastic membership. We always have the largest turnout for Young Farmers events, and we volunteer for quite a lot of community and charity events helping with the traffic management and things like that. We are always looking at ways to support other clubs and the region,” she said. Recently the club organised the National Ploughing Association event

hosted by the Courtenay Paparua Ploughing Association. Association chair, Jeff Cridge, described West Melton Young Farmers’ involvement as “fantastic.” All gate takings from the event were returned by the club to the National Ploughing Association. Earlier in the club’s busy schedule, they volunteered at the recent Jump for Cancer event in Hagley Park. The club is heavily involved with charity work, Ms Legat said. continued on page 3 …

Selwyn classical music lovers are in for a treat next month with internationally renowned tenor Simon O’Neill returning home to perform with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in Christchurch. An Evening with Simon O’Neill at the Isaac Theatre Royal on June 13, will be the singer’s debut orchestral performance of Richard Wagner’s famous song cycle the Wesendonck Lieder. Hailed by critics as “the Wagnerian tenor of his generation”, O’Neill has recorded Wesendonck Lieder with New Zealand pianist Terence Dennis but has never sung the song cycle with an orchestra. The NZSO will be led by acclaimed Dutch conductor Lawrence Renes, who has a long association with O’Neill and NZSO Music Director Edo de Waart. When O’Neill first performed with the San Francisco Opera in 2012 in John Adams’ Nixon in China, Renes was the conductor. “Maestro Renes was a fantastic conductor of the Adams work, and I can’t wait to work with him on this NZSO tour,” Mr O’Neill said. “I couldn’t be more grateful for this — Wagner, for me is the pinnacle. The composing of the Wesendonck Lieder appears in an incredibly important time in Wagner’s life and career.” An Evening with Simon O’Neill will also see the NZSO perform Wagner contemporar y Anton Bruckner’s

Symphony No 4. Conductor Lawrence Renes said he has long been an admirer of Bruckner’s works since he first performed the composer’s symphonies while a violinist in the Netherlands National Youth Orchestra. He said conducting the world’s leading orchestras is like driving a Ferrari. “It’s a fantastic feeling, and it’s the most fulfilling thing for me.” ¢

However, the club’s community spirit doesn’t stop at volunteering. Coming up there is the prospect of the club publishing a nude calendar as a fundraiser for Rural Support Network in Canterbury. “That’ll be a bit of a challenge,” Ms Legat said. “But it is all part of the fun of being in the club and shows what a little bit of imagination can do, and it is for a good cause.” Ms Legat said the club was hoping for the best at the national finals. In all, there will be seven regional finalists competing for the coveted prize. “We are certainly hoping that we will be right up there, and the club executive will meet over the next couple of weeks planning our strategy and content for the finals.” Ms Legat, who is into her third term as the club chair, believes a win at the national final, becoming Club of the Year at its first attempt, will be a huge stimulus for the club. However, she said for her and the club members, the

ultimate satisfaction is being part of such a vibrant club and organisation. “There is a lot of reasons to be a member of Young Farmers. It’s a great organisation to belong to. “Very social. Here at West Melton, we have had such a huge year and an awesome membership growth. You don’t even have to be a farmer. Up until recently, we didn’t have a single farmer in our group.” Anyone interested in joining Young Farmers can go to the organisation’s website youngfarmers.co.nz or contact Bex direct on 027 958 9242. The West Melton branch meets every second Monday at the Rocks Restaurant Rolleston from 7.30pm. 

The welfare team is a group of volunteers trained to open and run a welfare centre and provide support to local communities during emergency events. Roles may include registering and identifying needs of people coming into the welfare centre. Council emergency management officer, Tasha Black, said volunteers would support people in an emergency, and be on the frontline of the response. “We are looking for people who are committed, empathetic to others, can show initiative, have good communication skills, and be confident working in an emergency setting.” On Tuesday, May 22 council is holding

Work with farmers

Liffey plant out a success u by Kent Caddick

u by Amy Adams, Selwyn MP

While we need to continue to strive to improve our freshwater quality, the recent government announcement on capping dairy herds is political grandstanding. We have already seen them blindside the oil and gas industry by drastically cutting exploration and now they’re doing the same to the dairy industry. There is no analysis, no consultation — they have no plan. Environmental improvements are only achieved by governments working together with industry to improve how things are done. The National Government set very specific national limits on nitrates, phosphorous, E coli, algae and ammonia through the national policy statements we put in place in 2014 and 2017. National’s actions put limits on dairy conversions in sensitive catchments, and these are progressively being rolled out by regional councils. In 2017 we agreed with farmers a plan for 56,000km of fencing along waterways over 12 years to come into effect from December 2017 — which this new Government has failed to act on. Farmers play a massive part in creating and investing in solutions to improve the way they operate. Unfortunately, it’s now clear this current Government is out to punish them — in

fact, the Minister for Agriculture himself said this government is “no friend to the farmer”. The government is seemingly failing to realise how important food production is to our economy and all of our communities, whether rural or urban. Ahead of the budget, Labour will continue their political attacks against the previous government. Yet the reality is we made big investments every year into both health and education — last year alone we increased health spending by $880 million a year — the highest increase in 11 years. Labour’s real problem is they promised too much. Now, these huge spending promises to both voters and their coalition parties are coming home to roost. This government is very fortunate we left the books in such great shape. Nevertheless, with their current raid on the regions, I am not confident that by 2020 the books will be looking as strong. That means less money for your family, as well as the health and education services we all need. ¢

More than 400 native trees have been planted in the Liffey Reserve in Lincoln thanks to the efforts of the Lincoln Envirotown Trust.

p Dr Sue Jarvis, left, and Mike Bowie from Lincoln Envirotown Trust at the Liffey Reserve plant out day

The recent Liffey plant out day attracted plenty of support from volunteers including students from the local university and high school. Dr Sue Jarvis of the Lincoln Envirotown Trust (LET) was pleased with the turnout. “There was a great response to the request for helpers at the Liffey planting including helpers from Lincoln University and Lincoln High School. “We managed to plant 425 native trees in under two hours, helped by the fact that Gordon Boyle, a local farmer

and member of Lincoln Envirotown, dug many of the holes for us with his post hole driver. “There were bellbirds and fantails — taking an interest in our efforts to improve their habitat. “Thanks go to Ralph Scott for his great organisation as well as the Lincoln Community Committee for providing the funding, Andrew Spanton and Derek Hayes from the Selwyn District Council for their support, Mike Bowie for positioning the trees and to Sue Bowie for the pikelets,” Dr Jarvis said. ¢

Selwyn Gallery anniversary celebration

u by Kent Caddick

The Selwyn Gallery in Darfield celebrates its 20th anniversary with a special exhibition next month.

p The Selwyn Gallery has become a focal point for artists and art lovers from all over the district

When the Selwyn Gallery opened in 1998, it was the only exhibition space outside of Christchurch available to artists in the Selwyn district. Malvern Community Arts Council chair, Philip Baldwin, said the 20th-anniversary celebration would be held in conjunction with the gallery’s June exhibition opening. “We are very pleased that six of the original nine artists who showed their works at our first Selwyn Gallery exhibition — Simon Edwards, Mike Glover, Svetlana Orinko, Marcia Scott, Pattison Parkin, and Hamish Wright — have agreed to exhibit an all-new line-up of artworks,” Mr Baldwin, said. “We are inviting past and present gallery volunteers, artist members, community supporters of MCAC, and local dignitaries to join us to see how the works of these artists have evolved over the past 20 years.” Mr Baldwin said the success of the gallery over the past 20 years is a credit to the team of volunteers, in recent years supported by an arts administrator, who coordinate and man the exhibitions by artists from the local and wider community. “The support of our major sponsor Orion, the Rata Foundation, Creative Communities and the Selwyn District Council has ensured the gallery has made improvements over the years creating a specialised retail area where artist members’ works are for immediate sale.” It’s a double celebration year for the Malvern Community Arts Council,

which will also mark 40 years since its establishment. The original MCAC steering committee first met on February 8, 1978, and comprised Moreen Eason, Barbara Vincent, Elisabeth Blackburn, Noelene Pearson, the Rev Hugh Patterson and Stuart Martin. A special opening evening to mark the Selwyn Gallery’s 20th-anniversary exhibition will be held on Friday, June 1–6pm at the gallery. Those planning to attend are being asked to RSVP to the MCAC’s arts administrator Katrina Ellis on 027 425 7356 or mcac.arts@gmail.com. ¢

High level of interest in plan Trip earns students Bronze Award u by Mike Isle

Earlier this month, six special education students from Rolleston’s Waitaha School embarked on one of their greatest challenges yet, and in the process earned a Bronze Duke of Edinburgh International Award and got to experience the great outdoors like never before.

p The climb to the top. At Godley Head, from left: Jonty, MacK, Jac, Alijah, Tehiahia and Michael

It was the trip of a lifetime for many of the students. The adventurous journey saw Jonty, MacK, Alijah, Jac, Tehiahia, Michael and support staff comprising of teachers and teachers’ aides negotiate the Godley Heads area — walking from Taylors Mistake to Boulder Bay, visiting the Godley Heads gun emplacement, and then hiking New Brighton Beach from the pier to the end of Southshore Spit. Course facilitator, Joshua Foundation’s Chris Allan, described the three-day, 18 kilometre journey as challenging

but rewarding. “The students worked hard, supporting and encouraging each other during the three days, proving to all, including themselves, that they are resilient, strong-willed and physically tough,” he said. The students themselves weren’t slow to express their excitement after the journey. A high-point for Michael was seeing a seal on New Brighton Beach; MacK enjoyed drawing on the beach; and for Jac, it was the simple matter of getting his feet wet. ¢

Consultation on the Selwyn District Council’s Long-Term Plan 2018–2028 has closed, with hundreds of Selwyn residents taking the opportunity to share their view on proposals for the next 10 years.

Initial returns show that by the time consultation closed recently more than 400 formal submissions had been received. More than 430 responses were also received to an online survey on the key proposals, and 1,150 people completed a quick poll on the Council’s Long-Term Plan consultation site. Selwyn Mayor, Sam Broughton, said the level of engagement with the community over council’s plans had been positive. “We’re pleased that so many people have taken the time to read about our proposals and think about what it means for them,” he said. “There have been some thoughtprovoking topics this year, such as the discussion about what approach the council should take in the future to ensure the safety of our community water supplies. “People have also been keen to share their views on major projects we’re proposing, such as new indoor sports and aquatic facilities, as well as new community centres in our townships and cycleways across the district. “All of the submissions and comments will be presented to councillors and will be taken into

Large animals and working dogs by Jill Dickie

Vetent Darfield has had another new face join the team, extending their knowledge base to further enable them to offer large animal veterinary treatment services. Dr Chip Verdes began working from the Vetent Darfield clinic at the end of January this year, after working as a large animal vet in Ashburton and Dunsandel for the past nine years. He enjoys the Darfield area because there is much more diversity in the breeds of animals he handles as there are so many lifestyle block owners, compared to mainly dairy farms further south. “What I like the most in this job is the variety of work. Dairy, sheep, beef, farm dogs and horse calls,” said Chip. Chip has not yet specialised in any particular field of veterinary medicine but enjoys all aspects of the role. In his home country of Romania he studied at the Veterinary University Cluj Napoca, then in 2002 came to New Zealand to gain experience in the dairy industry. His work as a dairy farm assistant took him into a meat inspector role, before he studied for and passed the New Zealand national veterinary examination in 2008. Chip currently lives in Rolleston and commutes to Darfield, and spends much of his spare time with his young family. He can be contacted at the clinic for your veterinary requirements on 03 318 8611.

Carving out a new niche for campus wood A series of wood-carving workshops is helping local Selwyn children and adults to salvage some of Lincoln University’s historic timber. Christchurch-based social enterprise, Rekindle, has set up shop at the Brandenburg Coppice on the university’s Lincoln campus to teach members of the public how to carve spoons and three-legged stools from the mature timber of 80 to 120-year-old oak trees. The trees were recently cleared to make way for the planned Lincoln University and AgResearch Joint Facility, a new shared education and research centre, which will replace the campuses’ earthquake-damaged buildings. Rekindle focusses on teaching creative skills, which can reduce waste and increase resourcefulness. Its latest initiative, Resourceful Otautahi, hosts the only New Zealand workshop specialising in greenwood and aims to encourage the public to use local materials for traditional crafts such as spoon-carving, basket-weaving and furniture-making. “Being able to make what we need from what we have — is something we

all need to feel confident in,” Rekindle founder, Juliet Arnott said. She sees the sharing of traditional craft skills as “still highly relevant today because they make the most of available local resources.” Second-year students from Lincoln’s bachelor of landscape architecture course have taken part in one of the workshops, which involved making greenwood stools. Lecturer, Jess Rae, said the Rekindle workshops gave the students a chance to learn about the tangible qualities of wood. “Materials tell stories — we can see where the material is from, how it has been used and cared for and what it adds to a space. “I have walked under those oak trees for years on my way through campus. To see them be made into something useful, to be used for teaching and to achieve a second or possibly third life on campus reflects the value that they hold.” ¢

Feedmix’s smart technology including a fleet of trucks, unique to New Zealand, fitted out with American-made milling and mixing machines, are able to turn unprocessed grain into a tasty, nutritious meal that will fill the gap created from a predominately grass-fed diet. Once the grain (which can be supplied by you or Feedmix) has been through the roller mill and been invigorated with molasses and other nutrient, it’s not just tasty (especially to calves) — it’s also a very effective way to boost

Now is the time to put on your lime With the grass growth starting to slow it is time to look at the maintenance of your pastures. It is important to note that the benefit of any expensive fertilisers may not be fully realised when the pH of the soil is not at its optimum level. Lime can be applied at a tenth of the cost of other fertiliser and when pastures require boosting it is a very good place to start. Lime is primarily applied to raise soil pH. By lifting the pH, you reduce soil acidity. Soil acidification is a natural soil process that is accelerated by legume-based pastoral farming, which is common in New Zealand. If left unchecked, soils will become increasingly acidic, and this will have a major impact on productivity. When lime (calcium carbonate) is applied, it gradually breaks down, providing both calcium and carbonate to the soil. The optimum pH for NZ soils is around pH6. It is important to remember that it does take many months for the full benefit of the lime application to be realised. Lime can be applied at any time of the year, but it is ideal to put it on in autumn or summer when ground conditions are firmer. Paddocks that are used for making hay and balage or growing crops particularly require a regular lime application. McCarthy Contracting can offer three different trucks for lime application ensuring the correct type of truck for each job. We have a mini spreader available for smaller blocks, vineyards and orchards.

All our agricultural lime comes from Springfield Lime, and we hold a stock of the lime in our yard. Please call us for any advice or if you wish to make a booking phone 03 329 6655 or email office@mccarthycontracting.co.nz.

Droughts to bring more crop disease New Zealand’s land-based primary industries need to get ready for more, and more serious, crop disease as climate change causes more and longer droughts, according to new research. In the journal, Australasian Plant Pathology, the authors say that climate change is expected to bring more droughts in many parts of New Zealand, and more droughts are “likely to increase the severity of a wide range of diseases affecting the plant-based productive sectors.” Scientists from the Bio-Protection Research Centre, Scion, Lincoln University, AUT University, Landcare Research, and the University of Auckland analysed the potential impact of climatechange-induced drought on several commercial plants and their diseases. They found that in most instances “increased drought is expected to increase disease expression.” The probable negative effects of drought include “a predisposition of hosts to infection through general weakening and suppressed disease resistance.” More frequent and more severe droughts could also lead to “emergence of enhanced or new diseases of plants

BARN K I T

that can reduce primary production.” “New plant disease pressures are expected to occur…with potentially devastating impacts for New Zealand’s productive sectors,” the authors said. However, the news is not all bad. “Drought may reduce the severity of some diseases, such as Sclerotina rot of kiwifruit and red needle cast (RNC) of radiata pine and in some cases it could activate systemic defence mechanisms resulting in increased resistance to infection.” In an extended case study the authors said the effects of increased drought on New Zealand’s Pinus radiata industry would depend on many factors, including whether drought happened early or late in the season. “There is urgent need to study the impacts of the different levels of drought and different levels of RNC severity to understand the thresholds at which radiata pine plantations would still accomplish their economic and ecological roles.”

p Drought conditions could lead to more serious crop diseases according to new research

Lead author, Dr Steve Wakelin, of the Bio-Protection Research Centre and Scion, said it was essential that more research was carried out so each industry could prepare for the effects of drought. “Many industries, such as agriculture and horticulture, may have time to gradually change over the next 20 or 30 years, to avoid the worst effects of drought or even take advantage of any

opportunities the changing climate may bring. However, plantation forestry does not have the luxury of flexibility. What is planted now will need to not just survive but thrive in whatever climate and disease conditions are prevailing in the next 20, 30 or 40 years. “It’s essential that primary industries with a long production cycle start assessing and addressing the risks and opportunities a much drier climate will bring.” ¢

Lifestyle ‘n’ Farming

Time for change in agriculture A Lincoln University agribusiness expert says Environment Minister David Parker is right to signal New Zealand agriculture cannot continue with business as usual. Senior lecturer in Agribusiness Management, Dr Nic Lees, said intensive dairying is currently profitable only because it is not bearing the full costs of its production systems. “It is not paying the cost to the environment of its production. We are all picking up the tab, and especially our children for the impact on our waterways and climate,” he said. “Currently intensive dairy farming is addicted to high production per cow. This means adding in concentrated feed such as palm kernel and high levels of nitrogen fertiliser. “This increases costs, which means these systems are only profitable with high production and high commodity prices.” Dr Lees said this shows New Zealand’s future is not in maintaining our position as the lowest cost producer of meat and dairy products. “The longer the beef and dairy industries hold on to a commodity model based on increasing output and lowering costs the greater will be the future farmer pain. I think we need to have conversations around ‘peak

cow’ and the future of our animal production industries.” He said the Labour Government is clearly signalling New Zealand’s future is not in commodities. “Minister Parker has said there is potential to change towards cropping, horticulture, which are high-value land uses,” Dr Lees said. “He is right to say there are too many cows, however the potential for cropping and horticulture to replace dairying is simply not going to happen. “There is no way horticulture and cropping can replace any significant portion of dairy farming land even if it was suitable for horticulture and cropping, which it mostly isn’t.” He said cropping and horticulture land takes up about 2.5% of New Zealand’s total land (422,400 ha). About 1.7% of that is in grain crops and less than 1% per cent for growing fruit and berries. In comparison dairy takes up about 20% (2.6 million ha). However, Dr Lees said there is potential for the horticulture sector to increase the value of our exports. “The horticulture industry already produces

p Dr Nic Lees from Lincoln University says intensive dairying is currently profitable only because it is not bearing the full costs of its production systems

$5.6 billion in exports from just 200,000 ha. This is in comparison to the dairy industry producing $13 billion from 2.4 million ha.” He said dairying can also learn from the sheep industry. “New Zealand reached peak sheep at 60 million in

1984. Now we have only 30 million but produce the same volume of lamb at significant higher value. “Less animals means less greenhouse gases, and reduces nitrate leaching. There is the potential to see this happen in the dairy industry also.” ¢
