Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?

These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.

A physical check does not tell the whole story as only part of the prostate can be accessed for examination. A PSA blood test can be more specific if cancer is present. A privately paid for MRI scan if not available from the public health service will provide the best information one way or the other.

The information I received prior to the start of this work was every thing would be put back to Council standards. Presumably an effort to re-establise the grass verge by leveling top dressing and seeding. Not so in my case view the evidence and commiserate with my despair. Please note I have made numerous attempts with Chorus and the Council to have this rectified but like the Groundhog Day movie the harder you try the more it stays the same.
