Farmers under pressure

From Afternoons, 2:17 pm on 27 August 2018

There has been a lot of news over the last week about issues in farming; a protest in Auckland on the weekend over animal rights, scrutiny on intensive agriculture after reports about feedlots in the country, and more discussion about the carbon footprint of meat and dairy producers. 

While all these stories have merit, many farmers are feeling under attack.

Megan Hands is director and environment consultant at Landsavvy, and has been sharing the worries of farmers on social media.
