A tad simplistic maybe but having farmed in both countries I view it as fairly accurate, there is no doubt that climate and scale do help to keep production costs low although I believe the main reason NZ can compete and compete well on the world stage is the marketing structure that is in place. the UK does not have anything close to it, in fact from what I see it just doesn't have one at all.A tad simplistic ,climate and scale of production will have as much if not more to do with it.
1. I dont think the entire world supports their farmers by giving them funny money. You may wish to research that.im of the opinion if the irish and rest of the world can afford to support their farmers so can we, no excuse!
19p kilo can be the difference of profit or not for a lot of us beef men , it’s a brutal tight way to derive a living.1. I dont think the entire world supports their farmers by giving them funny money. You may wish to research that.
2. I don't think Ireland can actually afford the money either, and what good is 19 pence a kilo to anyone?
