“We’re extremely disappointed SAFE has chosen to advertise internationally – it’s totally unnecessary.
“We know the mistreatment of calves is not widespread - but there are issues we need to resolve and we’re working collaboratively to do that. Action has been taken and yet SAFE still went ahead with these alarmist adverts.”
DairyNZ along with the Ministry for Primary Industries and six other industry associations announced on Friday last week that they had joined together to eradicate the mistreatment of bobby calves.
“We’re committed to working with everyone in the supply chain to ensure bobby calves are well cared for. Resolving these issues will depend, not on words, but on actions.”
