If you can, put yourself in the hooves of a cattle beast. In fact, put yourself in the hooves of two types of cattle beast. The first type is the kind we’re all generally familiar with. The one we see in paddocks up and down the country. The one that gets to eat as much grass as it wants day-in, day out. The one that certainly gets rained on and sn…
 
Effects of delayed respiratory viral vaccine and/or inclusion of an immunostimulant on feedlot health, performance, and carcass merits of auction-market derived feeder heifers. Delaying implant in high-risk calves has no benefit for health or feedlot performance Effects of on-arrival versus delayed modified live virus vaccination on health, perform…
 
It is going to be a stinking hot few days in Canterbury, which is perfect timing for the long weekend. I see the Metservice is warning that temperatures are going to be higher than normal for our neck of the woods, which may or may not be perfect timing for the long weekend - depending on what you’re going to be getting up to. But when things get h…
 
MPs Duncan Webb and Gerry Brownlee joined John MacDonald on Canterbury Mornings to discuss the murder of Juliana Herrera and whether the public should be notified when violent offenders move into their neighbour hood. Also on the agenda was recession fears, the Cabinet reshuffle and measurement of elective surgeries. LISTEN ABOVE See omnystudio.com…
 
I have found it so sickening reading and hearing the reports on the sentencing of the psychopath who sexually assaulted and murdered Juliana Herrera in her Christchurch home last January. I’m not using the term “psychopath” loosely, either. Because, as it's being reported today, he was described in one of the reports prepared for the sentencing jud…
 
This time last year, I remember the then relatively-new National Party leader Christopher Luxon saying to me: “Give me a chance to prove myself, John. I’ve only been in the job five minutes”. Or words to that effect. Twelve months on and with a lot of water under the bridge, including the resignation of a Prime Minister, it appears that Christopher…
 
AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich is joined by Dr. Isaac Jumper, a clinical instructor at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Jumper is the principal author of three papers recently published in the AABP peer-reviewed journal, The Bovine Practitioner. We discuss the journal and our new submission, review and publica…
 
I was starting to think that I might be having second thoughts about the Government’s Three Waters reforms even before the disaster that hit Auckland on Friday night. It was last week when I was looking at the map online showing which bays in Lyttelton Harbour are considered safe for swimming, on the basis of water quality. If you’ve looked at it r…
 
There’s a surgeon in Christchurch who owns a prime piece of real estate in the central city, right across the road from the five-star George Hotel. The section is worth about $4 million and the surgeon and his partner had planned to build on it at some point but they changed their minds. And so the section is vacant. Well, vacant in terms of a perm…
 
John MacDonald kicked off Politics Friday for 2023 with Poto Williams and Gerry Brownlee live in the studio. Discussed was the situation in Christchurch city with homeless people now camping with permission in a $4 million section, the new Prime Minister's appointment and Williams' emotional reaction to Jacinda Ardern's resignation. Will cost of li…

The artist who created the White Chair memorial for the 185 victims of the Christchurch earthquake has suggested that the new stadium might incorporate white seats amongst the red in the new stadium. This follows news that the current plot of the chair memorial is now for sale. Peter Majendie joined John MacDonald to discuss why he feels it would b…
 
I thought Christopher Luxon looked like a fish out of water yesterday at Rātana, where hundreds of people and politicians from across the political divide go every January. It’s the home of the Rātana Church and the annual gathering is considered to be the start of the political year. When I say politicians from across the political divide go there…
 
What’s the chance, do you think, of New Zealand taking a long-term view and coming up with a 50-year plan for roads? I’d say it’d be something close to diddly squat, going by the level of commitment and foresight that seems to be going into roading at the moment. Not that it’s stopped the outfit representing trucking firms, the National Road Carrie…
 
AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich is joined by family practice physician Dr. John Madany. Madany worked on ranches and assisted with beef production research while in college and considered veterinary school but ultimately decided to become a physician. He describes his journey of prescribing medication to patients with diabetes, high blood…

This time last week I reckon even die-hard Labour supporters would have been starting to accept that Labour was looking like being dog tucker in the election later this year. I don’t know how many times I had to remind myself that the party was only in its second term of government because, for quite a while now, it’s looked like a government neari…

There's another report today of people being assaulted and having their property stolen after an incident at Christchurch's bus interchange. Two young women have been struggling to sleep at night after being brutally assaulted by five young people when they were waiting for a bus. The assault happened at a bus stop near Christchurch Hospital - but …

Yesterday, the Christchurch City Council agreed to give its chief executive a $16,000 pay rise. This time last year, she got a $18,000 pay rise. And why? Because Dawn Baxendale is an asset to the council. That’s what mayor Phil Mauger says. Let me quote him: “She is an asset to the council and we know everyone has had a tough year so we want to ack…
 
Do you remember when Parliament packed up shop this time last year and Jacinda Ardern thanked all of us for how we’d dealt with the whole COVID thing? She wished us a wonderful break, and went on to say “you bloody deserve it”. Yesterday, she took the language up a notch - calling ACT leader David Seymour “an arrogant prick”. She said it after she’…
 
All I want for Christmas is a new Local Government Minister. Because, as far as I’m concerned, Nanaia Mahuta has blown it. And I don’t think I can believe a word she says anymore. I suspect some of her government colleagues might be starting to feel the same. It’s all to do with revelations that she continued to consider entrenching part of the Thr…

Scour Bos provides comprehensive protection against up to nine …
 
I can remember a time when it had to be a really stinking hot day for the seal on the roads to melt. And those really stinking hot days were pretty much few and far between, which meant melting roads were few and far between too. These days, though, it’s a completely different story isn’t it? The latest example in a long line of examples of roads f…
 
So there’ll be no entrenchment, but the Government’s Three Waters reforms are still a dog’s breakfast. Three Waters being stormwater, wastewater and drinking water which, at the moment, local councils are responsible for. But the Government thinks they aren’t up to the job and wants to set-up four new water authorities to take over. And yesterday, …
 
Can you imagine how it must feel to be the parents who were told by the High Court that decisions regarding their son’s life-saving heart surgery are now out of their hands? This is the wee boy who needs urgent surgery because he has a condition where one of the valves in his heart isn’t working properly, which means pressure and blood could back u…
 
If you’re a Christchurch ratepayer, how do you fancy the idea of your rates going up by 70 percent over the next nine years? That’s what the city council is grappling with and it’s just been advised that it should think about selling off some of its assets - because a 70 percent increase just isn’t sustainable. That’s in a report that’s been done f…

We’ve learned that managing dry cows pays dividends down the line. How the cow moves through the dry period influences her production, health, ability to become pregnant again and ability to stay in the herd. So how can we help cows stay comfortable and healthy through the dry period? AABP Executive Director Dr. Fred Gingrich is joined by Dr. Lucia…
 
So, five o’clock on Friday afternoon, it was announced that the big new Metro Sports Facility in Christchurch isn’t going to be finished anytime soon. This is the massive building which, at the moment, looks like a stage at an outdoor rock concert. It’s looked like that for a while, actually. So much so, that - to me anyway - it’s looked like not m…
 
Whenever a child is murdered and I see their photo online or in the paper, I always find myself staring at it thinking ‘you poor little thing, how the hell did things go so wrong’. And today there’s yet another little face I’ve been looking at, thinking exactly the same thing. Today’s “poor little thing” is Malachi Subecz, who was five years old wh…
 
How often do you go into the central city in Christchurch? I did a few things in town yesterday afternoon and, I’ve got to be honest with you, there were parts of it that were just dead. There was a cruise ship in town yesterday and I saw a few of those people walking around the place but, as someone in one of the shops told me, even with the cruis…
 
This one is a real conundrum. Health New Zealand is going to court today to get guardianship of a 4-month-old baby boy who needs open-heart heart surgery, but whose parents are refusing to give permission for him to receive blood during the operation that’s been donated by people who have had the COVID-19 vaccination. And so the health authority wa…
 
There’s a saying I refer to when someone tries to deny there’s a problem by putting up a whole lot of stats as some sort of defence or excuse. And that is exactly what we’ve got happening in relation to crime in Christchurch. The saying goes like this: “People don’t care what you know, until they know that you care.” Which is the message I’m giving…

Christchurch mayor Phil Mauger has some answering to do. The first question he has to answer, is how does he think he’s going to get away with his statement over the weekend that keeping rates increases to four percent or less next year is going to be a challenge? Because this is the guy who said before the local body elections last month that he w…
 
So, after failing miserably with Kiwibuild, the Government thinks the solution is to let people squeeze more places onto single sections. Which is why it wants councils around the country to start letting people build three, three-storey properties on one site. Which is something the last Christchurch City Council - before the recent local body ele…
