Remember all the hoo-ha raised about how bad new Chinese-based owners Shanghai Pengxin were going to be for the farms, New Zealand and world peace etc, etc?  The Hound notes recent reports show the farms are booming, producing way higher, employing more people and have had a lot of money spent on environmental and infrastructure improvements. It is good to see those screaming skulls’ protests – hidden behind a thin veil of racism – have been proven utterly wrong and their silence on the Crafar Farms now is rather deafening.
