Recently, the Netherlands announced plans to assist their farmers and reduce the impact of animal agriculture. Farmers will have access to a buy-out scheme to support them in transitioning to more sustainable farming systems. We need our Government to act now, before it's too late.
Aotearoa needs to embrace a future where our primary industries do not depend on the exploitation of our animals and our environment. Farmers need support from our Government to transition away from intensive animal agriculture towards farming systems that better align with our values as an ethical, sustainable and forward-thinking nation. Urge our Government to create a clear plan of action that will support Kiwi farmers out of industrial dairy farming.
