The View from the Cow Shed Debate
This election DairyNZ wanted to give voice to dairy farmers’ concerns and priorities to help politicians better understand the issues impacting on farmers. To ensure we were presenting an authentic perspective we surveyed farmers on a wide range of issues and presented the findings in our “View from the Cow Shed” report.
We have used this information to underpin our policy platform for the 2020 election which we have narrowed down to the top 10 things the next Government should do to improve outcomes for dairy farming families, their rural communities and New Zealand.
In our 'View from the Cow Shed' debate we invited key spokespeople from the major political parties to come and discuss our findings. Hosted by Jamie McKay from The Country and featuring Hon. Damien O’Connor, Hon. David Bennett, Hon. James Shaw and Mark Patterson.
