Quote for “Write Anything Wednesday”.
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dairy Farming in New Zealand.
I lived under Mount Egmont/Taranaki NZ for sixty years, dairy farming and breaking a trail through thick bush right under the mountain reserve, milking cows, it was our way of life.
We sold the dairy farm in May 2014.
New Zealand dairy farmers are on a real downturn in income, a lot will not be able to keep farming, banks will be selling them up.
Where will New Zealand farmers go? Where will their paths end?
Because they did leave a trail behind them, with years of hard work.
What is happening to New Zealand dairy farming?
