WATCH: Rotterdam's floating cows: the future of farming?

The Team from Play Stuff

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.

First ever Māori councillor for Hauraki

The team Reporter from Hauraki Herald

Rino Wilkinson is Hauraki's first Māori councillor.

Radio DJ and father-of-two Rino Wilkinson, of Ngāti Tamaterā, was the third-highest polling candidate for the Paeroa ward at the 2019 local body elections.

He says he's unsure what is stopping fellow Māori stepping into local politics. He suggests "it could be because some might not have the confidence to step into, or engage with that world." What are your thoughts?
