Shut up!

Written by  The Hound

Your old mate reckons one good thing about the current COVID-19 situation is that most of the anti-farming whining and moaning from the usual suspects has shut down – as the country focuses fighting the coronavirus.

Unfortunately, this has not been the case from multi-national, tax-dodging, professional fundraising lobby Greenpeace.

However, it appears the tragics at the professional fundraising lobby have missed the fact that since the lockdown, NZ’s greenhouse gases have plummeted – as people stay at home and air travel has ground to a halt.

Yet the country still has exactly the same number of dairy cows, beef cattle and sheep numbers as it did before the lockdown! And it will be these dairy cows, beef cattle and sheep that help NZ out of the economic malaise – not lecturing from irrelevant Greenpeace activists.
