    Drugs found in Milk

    Sounds a bit to me like UK dairy processors have very poor standards and traceability. If they can't do something as simple as trace an inhibs fail, what else are they doing? We still don't know whether the farmer in the OP did accidentally let a red cow in though.

    Drugs found in Milk

    Everybody seems keen to pin it on the dairy company, which is fair because stuff ups happen but I didn't see anything in the OP that said the farmer didn't accidentally put antibiotics in the vat. Shouldn't be hard to figure out, if the bulk sample failed the individual samples would be isolated...

    Dairy Farm For Sale

    There's a lot of every nation here really, but yeah some interesting names. There's a Tavistock dairy south of Timaru, could be Beefies southern farm? There's also a dairy farm just outside Ashburton Called "Panty Downs". Got to be related to @Bald Rick :nailbiting:

    Dairy Farm For Sale

    Its quite flash. I used to pick milk up there when it was first built but before the cubicle shed went up, at which point they changed milk companies. It was considered a good shed because you got to it off a tar seal road, the track was smooth and it was usually what's known as a 'single suck'...

    Dairy Farm For Sale

    Not too far from here, decent size, plenty of irrigation, even got cubicles to make you feel at home (y) I'm guessing you'd have a choice of 3 different milk buyers. Got about 10 days to get your bid in. https://www.pggwre.co.nz/property/ASH34685/659-ealing-montalto-road-carew/

    UK, US and Australia launch landmark security pact

    Its certainly become clear that the jobs weren't handed out based on ability to actually do anything. We're a 'team of 5 million' until Maori are mentioned, there's a whole different attitude then.

    UK, US and Australia launch landmark security pact

    Not the best of plans when the country depends on others to buy its goods. Container ships are already staying away, no one in power seems bothered though.

    UK, US and Australia launch landmark security pact

    There could be 10 US nuclear subs in NZ waters this morning and the government wouldn't know a thing about it. Our foreign minister was all over the news talking about the subject though. Oh no wait, she said nothing, just like she's never left the country since she got the job. NZ is...

    Covid Vaccine Roll out.

    So the vaccine isn't really slowing spread just reducing how ill you are. Does trial data in children show that being vaccinated means they don't pass on the virus as easily? Are teachers required to be vaccinated?

    Covid Vaccine Roll out.

    So the children are disrupted because of a lack of teachers, not because they are close contacts or sick with the virus? So the question becomes why are all these teachers off? You say the children are passing Covid on but couldn't it be the other way round and why does it matter if all teachers...

    Lorry driver shortage

    If the driver had arrived at 8.20 they would still have been sitting there at 9 anyway so no difference. Its like the, drivers have to wait in a little hut with no access to facilities rule. If every driver told the shipper/receiver to feck off and were backed up by their employer it wouldn't be...

    Is John Deere Plus-50 oil worth it

    If you're only running stuff to 3 or 4 thousand hours and moving machines on, it probably doesn't matter what you put in as long as its up to the spec. If you're trying to get 20 thousand hours out of a motor before rebuilding it, you might want to pay more attention to what you're putting in...

    Medical Apartheid in the state of Victoria

    There is but all the cases are in Auckland and you're not allowed to travel out of there unless you're an essential worker and from today they are requiring tests to get out of the area I think. Some have managed to escape though and later been dobbed in online and tracked down by the cops...

    Lorry driver shortage

    How far away are the factories? A lot of the AD lot seem to cart for miles with tractors and trailers. Perhaps the 60kph Fendt's and 20 ton grain trailers could do it? Must be heaps of them sitting idle over winter?

    Covid Vaccine Roll out.

    As I said up thread, school disruption seems to be because of the rules schools and the government have put in place, not the fact that the children are regularly off sick with the virus. That is not a medical reason for it in my very poorly educated opinion. Again, what is causing the...

    The Flu jab

    Yes Covid is worse than flu but if you have a Covid jab - and you should - there's no reason to not get the flu jab too.

    Covid Vaccine Roll out.

    I thought the case made by the UK experts is give the vaccine to the children to prevent school disruption? That doesn't sound like a medical reason to do it to me.

    Medical Apartheid in the state of Victoria

    The government fecked around and didn't order any to arrive early so started jabbing really late. To be fair their argument was it didn't seem fair for a country with no Covid to get early delivery when other countries were struggling. Then they decided on just using Pfizer, which again is...

    Is John Deere Plus-50 oil worth it

    How much more per barrel is the JD stuff compared to the equivalent oil from company that makes it for them?
