There are already too many cows for our rivers and our climate to cope with.
New Zealand urgently needs fewer cows but corporate dairy is so out of control it’s still trying to expand and convert more land into dairy farms, even in unique and fragile places like the Mackenzie country. Right now, a businessman and land developer from Dunedin has approval to convert a huge station in the Mackenzie to intensive dairy. He plans to put 15,000 cows right next to Lake Pūkaki.
Enough is enough.
The Government has said it’s going to release a new set of freshwater regulations in the middle of this year.
If we we act quickly now, together, we can get the Government to stop new dairy conversions. Together we can save the Mackenzie!
