Factory farming in the Mackenzie Basin – again

by frog

NZ Herald reports:

Three companies are trying again to secure land use rights for large-scale dairy farming in the Omarama and Ohau regions of the South Island.

They want to develop 16 dairy farms with up to 17,850 cows housed in cubicles.

Looks like it’s the same people with the same sort of plans as last time. One thing that is different now is that there’s no pesky Environment Canterbury acting as gate-keepers, just Nationals hand-picked team of dictators.
