Analysis of existing datasets, and new field and experimentation datasets (temporal and spatial) to determine the impact of cattle access to (and exclusion from) watercourses on freshwater ecosystems.

Evaluate the cost-effectiveness of cattle exclusion measures and assess farmer attitudes to the environment, their perception of estimated costs and their likelihood of adopting measures to prevent cattle access.
