Greenpeace Aotearoa lead agriculture campaigner Christine Rose said “Ardern’s nuclear free moment is drowning in a piss-apocalypse from the plague-size dairy herd. Industrial dairy is New Zealand’s biggest polluter because there are just too many cows. The climate and biodiversity crisis requires the Ardern Government to reduce the size of NZ’s grossly boated huge dairy herd.
Over the last thirty years, the New Zealand dairy herd has almost doubled. In some areas, the increase was even more extreme. Canterbury’s dairy herd increased by 10 times and Southland’s by 16 times since 1990.
“Synthetic nitrogen fertiliser and imported feeds such as palm kernel expeller drive this explosion in cow numbers.”
“The Ardern Government must protect Aotearoa’s environment and halve the dairy herd. And support farmers’ transition to more plant-based, lower impact regenerative organic farming.”
“Access to safe drinking water is a basic human right. Yet synthetic nitrogen fertiliser and urine from too many cows are leaching dangerous levels of nitrate into drinking water. We need to cut this nitrate pollution at source by halving the dairy herd.A cleaner, regenerative organic food system is right around the corner if our political leaders phase out synthetic nitrogen fertiliser and invest in the regenerative organic farming revolution” said Rose.
