What is it with Massey University academics and their hatred of agriculture? 

The Hound is used to hearing Massey lecturers Mike Joy and Russell Death, along with Massey student and water campaigner Marnie Prickett, bagging farming – dairy in particular – and falsely blaming the sector for destroying the country’s environment. But when he heard a supposed agribusiness expert from the same Massey, James Lockhart, recently telling radio host Mike Hosking that NZ was too reliant on agriculture, your old mate decided it was time to give up on Massey.

This old mutt reckons any prospective students wanting to get a positive and forward thinking view of the NZ agribusiness sector should probably head south.
