    So the new insulation law, only covers ceilings and floors where assemble. So if your in a house with poor cladding which lets water and the cold in, the landlord gets a free pass.

    Just another great law written by kiwis serving the interests of no one really. And just another free pass to leaky home suffers as renter.

    Apparently, the feedback against feedlots has been so overwhelming, according to Checkpoint, that Wakanui Beef have removed the list of stockists and restaurants that buy their cruel meat from their website.
    It is great too see people power is making this traders in cruelty run.

    I copied them the other day.
    Before they took the names down.

    So.

    Here are their Auckland stockists.
    Boycott them.

      • Cinny 2.1.1

        Thanks for the info Ed, no more Westmeat for our family.

        • Ed 2.1.1.1

          The website now says.

          “If you would like to try Wakanui at home, look for our brand in retail stores. All our product is clearly labelled or, if you prefer, try it in some of New Zealand’s finest restaurants.”

          • Cinny 2.1.1.1.1

            wakanui is off the menu 🙂 Will let others know as well.

            Do you know if they make cheese, milk, butter or yoghurt via the feedlot cattle please?

            Our household doesn’t eat much red meat, maybe once every two weeks.

            Thanks again for the info Ed. Much appreciated.

      • Muttonbird 2.1.2

        Good on you Ed. This outfit was hit with an M Bovis notice today I read. This in the media will change peoples’ awareness and habits, that is for sure.

        • Ed 2.1.2.1

          Rachel Stewart suggests plenty more evidence of cruelty in farming to come.

          “I’ll let both you, and BigAg, in on a secret. Way more revelations are coming. Wait until you hear about winter cropping, and what’s going on there regarding animal welfare.

          Not really any different from feedlots, and arguably even more mud and shit everywhere. Fodder beets are commonly used for high carbs and quick fattening, and also with no shelter from the elements. And, environmentally? It’s all bad news.

          If you’re shocked now, wait until you hear about foetal blood taken from pregnant cows at slaughter. Wait until you find out how that’s done, and the irony of what it’s used for. The stuff about to come down the pipe will make feedlots look like a walk in the park. Your hair’s gonna curl. “

          • joe90 2.1.2.1.1

            You’ll shit when you learn all about what the industry euphemistically terms Asian edibles.

      • James 2.1.3

        Most of my favourite restaurants in there.

        Euro and Jervois are two regular haunts – and not a hope in hell im stopping

        • Molly 2.1.3.1

          I think Ed was posting for those with some form of self-awareness.

          So, as you were, James.

        • Draco T Bastard 2.1.3.2

          Because inflicting pain and suffering for your own benefit is all good right?

    • mauī 2.2

      Feedlotting scum.

    • Matiri 2.3

      The feedlots are owned by ANZCO, who also own Westmeat who are named as stockists.

      • greywarshark 2.3.1

        Sounds good! Looks good – not a feedlot in sight.
