Behind the eight ball

Written by 

Global animal health company DSM says it has a product that can help reduce emissions from cows by up to 30% but surprisingly the Government is not keen.

Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor says the product “needs to be fed with every mouthful of feed so there’s no guarantee we can use it in NZ farming systems”.

But DSM says that’s false. It blames MPI for feeding the wrong information to the minister.

Milking It also believes DSM had been trying to contact him directly for a year or so to brief him on the product, called 3-NOP.

Someone is well behind the eight ball on this.
