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.

Lake Whakamaru Reserve was closed during the last summer holidays, much to the disappointment of many holiday makers, while large 60 to 80-year-old pine trees were felled for health and safety reasons.
