Multi-season magazine-style show Rural Delivery covers the latest in New Zealand's primary industries. In this episode from 2009, special features include major innovations in robotic milking, a sustainable forestry success story, and how efforts to protect Lake Taupō affect farmers. Presenter Roger Bourne also delivers the rural news segment; from stock prices to leadership changes. The news segment also addresses the West Coast's "rustlers" problem — thieves stealing livestock in the night. Bourne passes on a message from Federated Farmers: you better hope the police catch you before the farmers do.
We were the first commercial farm, last year in New Zealand, to actually adopt robotic milking . . . There are many benefits to robotic milking and we perceive these not only in money terms but also in terms of lifestyle.– Winslow Ltd. Managing Director Craig Carr
