Good value

Written by  The Hound

A mate of this old mutt reports being somewhat surprised to see Southland farmer and chair of Beef + Lamb NZ Andrew Morrison gracing the streets of the plush North Shore suburb of Takapuna in Auckland, last month.

According to the Hound’s spy, Morrison was observed walking around the streets of Takapuna – not riding in expensive taxis or fancy Ubers – and seen eating at a cheap burger joint, obviously testing the end-product and basically acting in a financially prudent manner on behalf for his B+LNZ levy payers.

The Hound is pleased to see that Morrison was acting in a frugal way and that sheep and beef farmers can be satisfied they are getting good value for money from their hard-working, producer organisation chair.
