Pets or steak? The inside story of a bovine brouhaha in the 'burbs

Pets or steak? The inside story of a bovine brouhaha in the 'burbs

An urban farm in Auckland has been raising cows for meat for years. This time, they decided to involve the community in the process – but the backlash was so intense, the plan was canned.

After backlash on social media, a petition to save the cows was launched and received 1500 signatures, leading to Kelmarna's board of trustees pulling the pin.

"In light of the public response, the Kelmarna board of trustees can confirm that we have returned our cattle to Kelmarna, and are working with a sanctuary who has offered to look after them permanently," read a statement on the Kelmarna Facebook page posted on Monday 10 June.
