Anytime you have the farming community on its hind legs screaming about something, you know you are doing the right thing…
Farmers are furious with the Green Party’s plan to introduce a new levy on the use of some fertilisers.
The Greens say farmers would be charged if they use artificial fertilisers – about $1500 a year for an average dairy farm and $1200 for a sheep and beef farm. A $297 million fund will be available to help farmers move towards low-emission agriculture and the use of palm kernel feed would be banned.
…the Green Party released an excellent policy on Farming that will make our rivers cleaner, lower emissions and reduce destructive Indonesian rain forest depletion.
These are necessary changes and it’s a cost Corporate Farmers must pay!
There’s no more waiting around as the planet burns, we are seeing real time acceleration of global warming so I don’t give two shits what the corporate farmers have to say on this.
Unfortunately it is unlikely to pass because the Greens have doomed themselves to being under 5% by alienating vast chunks of the electorate with their activists micro aggression policing cancel culture.
If we want to see the Corporate Farmers pay their fair share, every Auckland Central voters must candidate vote Chloe Swarbrick to ensure the Greens are back and this awesome Agricultural Policy undertaken.
