The Straight Furrow is reporting today that Cargill are marketing cotton seed meal from Australia as a good feed for our dairy herds.
We have real concerns that this cotton seed is genetically engineered.
Feeding GE to our dairy herds, along with the environmentally damaging palm kernel, is a real risk to our 100% pure New Zealand marketing advantage.
The Government hasn’t got a vision for how to protect our advantage and is instead allowing imports of GE products and palm kernel to feed our dairy cows.
