Based on the results of a probit model estimated from a survey of 1625 farmers from seven major dairying regions in New Zealand, farmers’ attitudes (perception about the overall benefits) appear to be are a major governing factor of waterway fencing in all regions. While fencing in Northland and West Coast regions was lower than elsewhere, owner/operators in those regions tended to fence more than farmers with other types of ownership structures. Environmental issues also appeared to be important; however the level of environmental awareness did not reflect the actual degree of fencing.
