Your old mate reckons the nomination of the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards (NZDIA) management team as a finalists in the 2020 Primary Industry Awards Team of the Year category, shows just how out of touch and hopeless Federated Farmers (who ran the awards) are as an organisation.
They say the definition of insanity is to keep on doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome.
Apparently the Feds are launching a new monthly publication (propaganda sheet) that will be sent out to rural boxholders.
This old mutt is unsure if Fed’s dwindling membership base is looking forward to having to subsidise another commercial publication flop – as it has had to do in past years with the financially disastrous Straight Furrow and the National Review that have both disappeared off the scene after costing the organisation an arm and a leg.
This looks like a hugely expensive ego trip that will burn more cash and credibility, both of which Feds seriously lacks at present!
