Milk & Money

Television, 2021

This six-part series lays out the basics of how dairy farming operates in New Zealand, and explores its impact on the country's economy, people, animals, and environment. Reporter/presenter Baz Macdonald charts dairy's explosive growth since the 1990s. He meets farmers, Fonterra execs and environmentalists, and asks if there is a better way. Milk & Money debuted on TVNZ's youth-focused digital platform Re: and TVNZ OnDemand. RNZ media commentator Colin Peacock asked why "such a significant, sensitive and long-running issue has not been documented by a series of this scale before". Read more on the show here.
