New Zealand has lead the way in livestock breed improvement for some time now and that is a huge nbenifit to animal welfare and its poor show to be running them down and the below is just for balance.

I reckon from what i see Lameness in sheep in this country is far less now than it was.

I'd say we're all (uk,nz,oz,us etc.) Equally looking to improve animal welfare. The consumer demands it. I get a bit sick of the whole were better, their better crap. Would rather stock farmers globally were united and shared ideas/systems to created a united front against the anti meat agenda. Given numnuts (pain relief ring applicator capable of injecting anaesthetic without applying the ring) is approved in NZ I can see it being mandatory to anaesthetise prior to docking or castrating (sheep and cattle). Won't be long before it's the same here.

I would argue that most folk that think the uk has high welfare and the uk low welfare when it comes to live stock ...... are mostly folk that are scared of what NZ can produce, and have an over inflated idea of UK welfare.

Can anyone that thinks it, actually explain how they have lower welfare in NZ?

I don't think it is lower welfare per se. I do think if the RSPCA set up in NZ tonight and applied thier foolishness to NZ farming NZ would then come up short in comparison to the stupidity adapted UK.
