Register for an Intensive Winter Grazing workshop


Otago Regional Council (ORC) are hosting free Intensive Winter Grazing workshops throughout Otago over February and March.

The ORC Consents, Compliance and Catchment Advisor teams will be there to help with:

  • Completing IWG resource consent application
  • Updating grazing management plan, for new or existing IWG consents
  • Any questions about IWG


ORC staff will help ensure that you leave the workshop with a completed IWG consent application and/or IWG grazing management plan, to give you peace of mind for the upcoming winter grazing season.

The free workshop will consist of:

  1. Introduction to ORC staff and attending industry groups (e.g., MPI, Beef+Lamb, Dairy NZ, Deer Industry NZ)
  2. A short 15-20 minute presentation from the ORC team
  3. Break into small groups, or sit one-on-one, for the workshop. 

To attend an IWG workshop, you need to register
(form is below).
