Thinking Forward TV Series Two

Episode 1: Dung Beetle Innovations

Sheep, cattle, horses, and other domesticated livestock have been brought to New Zealand without the dung beetles that have evolved in other areas to process their dung.

Dung Beetle Innovations have been working over 6 years to introduce species of dung beetle that are able to deal with pastoral dung effectively.

We meet with Shaun and the team to learn how they’ve developed beetle farming techniques, and how they go about their farming day to day.
