Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) has joined forces with Silver Fern Farms, Alliance, Greenlea Premier Meats, ANZCO and Deer Industry New Zealand (DINZ) to deliver 50 Greenhouse Gas workshops over the course of 30 days.
This old mutt's informant advised him that the writer of this letter - one Scott Gower - is not just some run-of-the-mill 'concerned farmer', but, in fact, the current Western North Island director on the Beef+Lamb NZ board.
According to the editor of this noble and fearless publication, Mr Gower never made this declaration on his letter to the editor.
Of course, everyone is within their right to write a letter of complaint.
However, is it not somewhat nebulous and less-than-honest for a current director of a farmer-funded organisation to write such a letter - without making such a declaration?
