    Nice interview but it confirms my prejudices. Glad to live in NZ, where all beef and lamb is pasture start to finish, not allowed any non-theraputic antibiotics on any growth hormones. Our cattle get a great life and death, actually. We kill no more than eight a year so the steers and heifers get a bullet while they are eating pasture with their mates (we do two at a time) so we can avoid the abbatoir entirely.

    And “organic” in NZ means something, very strict animal husbandry, horticulture and agriculture. Oh, NZ beef and lamb is more than price competitive with US product. Last trip to the US (I’m horrible about this) I multiply pounds by 2.2 and multiply the money by .7 and beef is literally half the price, comparing it US ‘grass fed’ bought here.

    We use kelpies for work on the farm, btw.
