Free range forest farm will see hens roaming among the trees - Stuff.co.nz
Laying hens will wander among trees that will later be harvested for timber and pulp in a pioneering operation set to open near Tokoroa.
Those behind a novel free-range farm in which chickens roam free in the bush says it will be pioneering sustainable egg production in New Zealand when it opens. The 139-hectare South Waikato property opens on Thursday near Tokoroa and is set to become New Zealands leading egg production site as it develops over the next five years to ultimately house 320,000 laying hens, free ranging among 90,000 native and exotic trees. The forest farm will open with 20,000 hens, eventually employing around 15 people when fully developed. The site, with eight laying sheds, will produce eggs under the Heyden Farms Free Range brand for egg producer and supplier Better Eggs Limited. READ MORE:* Egg farmers weigh up options over hen housing systems * New rules on hen cages and rising feed costs lift egg prices Better Eggs chief executive Gareth van der Heyden said the agroforestry venture, combining forestry and poultry, would see the pine, oak, poplar and eucalyptus trees planted on the property milled for timber or pulp when mature. The growing trees would sequester carbon, he said. The family-owned business wanted to farm poultry in a way that enabled the hens to live in a natural environment while producing eggs sustainably. Hens at the Tokoroa farm with rows of trees nearby. Pine, oak, poplar and eucalyptus trees planted on the property will be milled for timber or pulp when mature. They will be able to roam and scratch on the forest floor in the shade, shelter and safety provided by the trees, and the laying sheds are specially designed to give the birds natural light and ample space to roam around in. The birds were being provided with the highest animal welfare and enrichment standards, he said, with the farms high level of automation enabling staff to spend a greater portion of their time caring for the hens. Eggs were transported from nesting boxes via conveyor belts to a robot that packed them into trays and pallets which were then delivered to the existing grading and distribution facility in nearby Lichfield. Van der Heyden said the land for the farm was purchased in early 2018 and the first shed completed in late 2020. A second shed was scheduled for completion in 2022 and tree planting for shed three would begin this September. Better Eggs is the combination of three family-owned poultry farms, Heyden Farms Limited, Henergy Cage-Free Limited and Rasmusens Poultry Farm Limited. Henergy pioneered cage-free barn egg production in New Zealand and Rasmusens is a fourth-generation family farm founded in 1937. One of the Heyden Farms Free Range laying sheds under construction. The site will be officially opened by Taup Member of Parliament Louise Upston with about 100 guests in attendance, including customers, staff, shareholders, suppliers and South Waikato District Council representatives. It is fantastic to see this significant investment in our community which will bring new jobs and opportunities to the South Waikato. With this long term investment the van der Heyden family is demonstrating their commitment to our community, said Upston. Representatives of each of the original families involved in the business will be on hand at the official opening, including 89-year-old Justina van der Heyden, Gareths grandmother, whose brother and sister-in-law started Heyden Farms in the 1970s.
Avoid the North Island: Aussie's advice for the trans-Tasman bubble - Stuff.co.nz
OPINION: A top Australian travel journalist says Aussie travellers should skip the North Island to avoid lockdowns. We say that's (un)fair dinkum.
OPINION: Avoid the North Island: that's the advice from one of Australia's top travel journalists just days out from the trans-Tasman bubble inflating. Ben Groundwater explains in his piece for traveller.com.au that he's concerned travellers to New Zealand could get stranded, so offers seven tips to avoid getting stuck. His first piece of advice is to skip Auckland. He then adds a cherry (the size of a basketball) on top by suggesting Australians should actually "avoid the North Island altogether". What? Earth to Ben? Come in? Do you realise you just blacklisted half the country for no good reason? Well, I'll let you be the judge. He argues: "If you really want to be on the safe side, you could avoid the North Island entirely. Given the Kiwis' success with containing any small COVID-19 outbreaks with swift lockdowns, the chance of the virus spreading from Auckland hotel quarantine to the South Island is pretty slim." Now, in my humble opinion (and, disclaimer, I'm passionately biased), Ben's advice is an underarm bowl to the great folk of the North Island. Ready your pitchforks, people. There's a lot you'll miss if you skip the North Island. READ MORE:* Trans-Tasman bubble: Air New Zealand launches flights to Hobart, Tasmania* Trans-Tasman travel bubble: How to skip the queue and fly this weekend for $250* 'Guessing in the dark': Tourist operators face uncertainty over travel bubble Does Ben realise that if you superimposed the North Island over the UK, it reaches from the top of Scotland to London (we Kiwis love superimposing our long skinny country on others because we're all about size.) Nobody would argue that you shouldnt visit Brokenwind in northern Scotland because its too close to London (yes, Brokenwind is a real place, by the way). So is Ben really saying Australians shouldn't fly into Wellington and visit the Wairarapa because big scary Auckland is 601 kilometres away? Do you hear that in New Plymouth? East Cape? Waitomo? I'll give you a second to clean your computer because I'm sure a few of you spat your coffee out reading the entire North Island should be avoided. So, I'm guessing Australians should fly into Christchurch or Queenstown, then presumably find a meditative cave in the Southern Alps, and keep constant guard at the entrance for any of those pesky North Islanders. Can you tell my feathers are a little ruffled? Our big brother Australia, which has had more lockdowns in various states than I can easily count (and has had a total of 29,451 Covid-19 cases), is saying travellers should avoid the North Island. What's next? Australia issues advice to watch out for New Zealand centipedes (despite being home to 170 species of snake). I am, of course, talking in jest. We love to have a joke with our Australian mates. And Ben makes some excellent points, especially about Auckland. It's the riskiest place to visit, with four lockdowns in the past year. If youre going to get stuck in New Zealand, Auckland is likely it. But let's take a closer look at the "avoid the North Island" claim. Not one North Island region, town or city (outside Auckland) has been locked down since the first nationwide shutdown a year ago. Ben says: "Given the Kiwis' success with containing any small COVID-19 outbreaks with swift lockdowns, the chance of the virus spreading from Auckland hotel quarantine to the South Island is pretty slim." But people infected with Covid-19 could fly domestically. In that respect, Covid is more likely to turn up in high air traffic destinations like Christchurch and Queenstown rather than Danniverke or Wairoa. Secondly, outside Auckland, the highest concentration of MIQ facilities is in Christchurch. Mic drop. I agree with potentially avoiding Auckland, but I don't think there is any material difference with flying into Wellington over Christchurch. In fact, it could be argued Christchurch is a slightly higher risk than the capital, given it has more MIQ facilities. In saying all that, I love a little general advice, so how about we turn the blowtorch on Australia and give our own travel guidance for avoiding a lockdown. Avoid Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. These three centres have the highest chance of outbreaks, given population sizes and proximity to hotel quarantine. Jacinda Ardern has previously raised concerns about New South Wales different approach, so she may be wary of its response and could suspend flights if it doesn't go hard and fast with a lockdown (which it seems reluctant to do). Victoria was the scene of the country's biggest outbreak, and both Melbourne and Brisbane have had snap lockdowns this year. Air New Zealand will be flying to Hobart soon. Head to Tasmania The island state doesn't have any direct international flights and has enjoyed a long Covid-free run. Air New Zealand will soon launch flights from Auckland, but if you take Ben's advice, it may be better to row a boat over from the South Island. Fly out of Wellington or Christchurch I agree with Ben's assessment that Auckland is the riskiest prospect so if you really want to minimise the chances of disruption, you could consider using the capital or Christchurch as your stepping stone to Australia. Explore paradise a little longer One option many are considering is to wait a few months and see how it all unfolds. By August, millions of people on both sides of the Tasman will be vaccinated, meaning the risk of an outbreak is considerably lower. Then, my dear Australian friends, you might be confident enough to enjoy the North Island too. Because, we think it's pretty special, as you can read here.
All Blacks star TJ Perenara in talks with Sydney Roosters as he considers shock move to league - 1News
The news comes after much speculation that New Zealand Rugby is not open to signing the former Hurricanes halfback.
World Cup-winning All Black TJ Perenara is considering a shock move to rugby league and the NRL, 1 NEWS can reveal. Your playlist will load after this ad 1 NEWS understands the All Black halfback could be set to change codes. Source: 1 Sport The news comes after much speculation that New Zealand Rugby is not open to signing the former Hurricanes halfback following his current stint in the Japanese Top League. 1 NEWS can confirm that Perenara is seriously considering a code switch after the Sydney Roosters reached out to his agent Warren Alcock. We are talking to NZR and other parties that have approached us, Alcock told 1 NEWS. It would be a bold move for the Roosters to sign the 29-year-old who, despite a number of links to rugby league through his family, has no playing experience in the 13-man code. Perenaras father, Thomas, was a Junior Kiwi and played alongside Kiwis great Kevin Iro. His first cousin, Henry, is an NRL referee. As a 15-year-old, Perenara once travelled to Melbourne with a group of Wellington teenagers, led by former Kiwis hardman John Lomax. He was offered a contract with the Storm but did not sign. TJ Perenara. Source: 1 NEWS It is understood the Roosters would look to play Perenara at hooker, a position they are desperate to fill following the recent retirement of Origin rake Jake Friend. The Japanese Top League season concludes on May 23, while the deadline for NRL teams to add new players to their rosters in 2021 falls in the first week of August.
