No idea

Written by 

A mate of the Hound reckons it is rather ironic – and totally appropriate – that the failing Australian-owned and controlled Stuff media group (which is up for sale) is using a dairy farmer who went pear-shaped as a font of all knowledge in its fast disappearing farming pages.

As your canine crusader’s informant points out, the Aussies made such a ‘Stuff’-up of their farming publications in NZ that they killed them off last year and now they have a guy who went broke pontificating about how farmers and the agriculture sector in this country should succeed.

Your old mate suggests it is a case of the blind leading the blind and reckons this little-heard-of farming ‘expert’ is about as successful as Stuff’s former farming publications in this country.
