Farming regeneratively & profitably | Russell Heald

Russell and Charlotte Heald have been on a journey for the last 4 years converting their farm to regenerative and now organic which has led to a wide range of positive change from staff, soil & animal health whilst remaining profitable.

As a case study for Calm the Farm, an organisation that supports NZ farmers to change to farming with a regenerative mindset, Russell explains how having pasture diversity is what is enabling them to have more pasture growth and create more resilience in dryer months.

Other benefits include milking once a day, reducing vet bills by 60% and having extra time for their family.

“It’s all about our environment, starting with our water, soils, animals and our people. That was something that we had a big focus on and for us, it's about reducing stress throughout that whole environment.”
