The farmers who booed Winston Peters at the water tax protest in Morrinsville in September may owe him an apology.
A 25-cow herd in Rutland Hills, UK are dubbed the luckiest cows in the world. They live on 48 acres of cow heaven, eating only the tenderest, tastiest organic grass available plus the odd organic carrot or digestive biscuit as a treat.
Their extraordinary good fortune is all thanks to Nicola Pazdzierska (57) and Sanjay Tanna (52) who set up the not-for-profit Ahimsa Dairy Foundation (Ahimsa means ‘cruelty-free’ in Sanskrit) in 2011. And their milk doesn’t come cheap.
At £4.50 a litre, it is also surely the most expensive -- nine times the cost of Sainsbury’s standard milk -- £2.60 a pint, for goodness’ sake.
