Further update on sheep dog ban in meat works...

Following the news last week that Silver Fern Farms is planning to ban all sheep dogs from meat work yards at the request of UK supermarket giant Tescos, Farmgirl has been told that Canterbury Meat Packers have been doing the same thing in Mid Canterbury for some time.

However, the move was not without ongoing costs as yards had to be redesigned.

One wonders if shareholders will be happy if SFF has to spend money on redesigning their yards as Farmgirl hears that many are old and will be difficult to shuffle sheep through without the use of our canine friends.

How much is that likely to cost?
