It is unrealistic to expect no odour from a livestock industry. We have adopted satisfactory management practices to limit the odour created on our farm. Odour problems are usually a short term issue and contained within our property boundary. There is no direct environmental risk to persons and here at Leppington Pastoral Company we welcome audits from the EPA. This ensures we keep up with current regulations and ensure best practice.
