Dairy Nation: The Story of Dairy Farming in New Zealand **NEW**

Author Nicola McCloy

An accessible, nostalgic look at how dairy has shaped New Zealand, telling the story through lively text and great photographs.

You could say our country is built on dairy - and this book examines its effect on our culture, our business, the way we think and the way we see ourselves.

When you drive the length of New Zealand, you see more and more land being converted to dairy farms.

Dairy prices are high and are providing lucrative lifestyles for dairy farmers - these are boom times.

Things have changed a lot in the dairy world: gone are the small farms with 90 cows and one farmer and a tractor; now they are huge farms with hundreds if not thousands of cows, and all is highly mechanised with high-tech solutions.

Nicola McCloy, the author of bestseller Whykickamoocow, brings the same light touch and a keen sense of humour to this book.

Thematically organised, this well-researched book considers all aspects of dairying including the consumer and the export industry, and how they impact on all of us. With breakouts on the innovators, the key companies and some of the dairy world's colourful characters, it covers all the bases and is an entertaining and informative read.
