According to the Oxford study, emissions resulting from the production of cow milk in NZ are half the global average. Meanwhile, the study also shows NZ dairy farmland use is one-ninth of the world average and its water use beats the global average.
NZ dairy also uses less water than both almond and soy milk production (suck on that James Cameron!). Therefore, this puts NZ milk among the most sustainable in the world.
So the question the Hound asks is, ‘why is the NZ government so determined to reduce our country’s milking herd -- to meet its crazy, self imposed methane goals in its Zero Carbon Bill?
