If Greens reduce cow numbers by 30%…

…farmers have a solution.

Greens have often said they want to reduce cow numbers by up to 30%.

Farmers rallied in Morrinsville on Tuesday, concerned about what may happen if Greens and Labour get into government and force a reduction in cow numbers.

But they threatened a response – if they have to reduce cow numbers they will increase the size of cows.


A spokesperson for Federated Farmers unveils a genetically modified cow that will enable dairy farmers to reduce cow numbers significantly.

  1. Going to need a step ladder to milk.
    Get into the ladder business now, you herd it here first.
    Chance to be so rich you won’t need to worry about politics ever again (you can pay someone else to do it for you).
    And don ever say I don’t do things for you.

  2. Yes, don,t laugh, quite likely would , just like National is manoeuvring to allow genetically modified pine trees in; ignoring the fact that we are GM free and that there are food crops that would cross pollinate with the timber pines,;pine nut trees. Non savants!

      Old news. The field trial was done in 2010, but vandals destroyed the trees.

      Pine-nut trees ? How about pineapple trees ? Dual-purpose !

      • Passed in Aug 2017 the National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry (NES-PF) overrides Regional and District councils to control local environments in the area of plantation forestry.Pine nuts, you know the expensive hings you can put in your salads, grow on Pine nut trees – Pinus pinea . Three are growing on my place. Great in Pesto.

    If the Greens would reduce bull by 30%, that would be great and they’d be much more tolerable…..
