Me and my friends are on a dairy adventure!
Nate and I have invited a few more of my friends along to help teach you about the absomootely farmtastic ways farmers are looking after the land and waterways.
Let me reintroduce you to Eelaine, Doggy Dog and Beetrice!
We all love our environment and know that farmers are working hard to help look after it. They are doing things like fencing off waterways from cows and planting the land beside waterways – known as riparian zones.
