Excellent pasture management has resulted in highly productive stock, while infrastructure improvements encompass fencing, water reticulation and building a bridge across the Mōtū River. The river has been fenced off to create a large wetland area, with more native planting planned along its banks to provide shelter and enhance biodiversity. Mark and Jane Johnson are part of the Motu Catchment project.
