The model is parameterised to maximise rural income across a catchment, accounting for the environmental impacts of land use and land-use changes. NZ-FARM currently tracks environmental outputs such as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture and forestry, forest carbon sequestration, water use, and nutrient and pesticide losses. "Presents the temporal and spatial changes in the number, size, and kind of livestock operations, and the changes in animal units, quantity of manure nutrients produced, land available for manure application, and excess manure nutrients at both the farm level and the county level.".

These effluents (solid and liquid slurry) contain high concentrations of chloride (Cl − from salts, such as halite, added to the cows' feed), nitrogen (N), and other possible contaminants such as pathogens.
