Our 2 year old beef-cross heifers are now at the home kill butcher and we have empty paddocks. We are looking for 3~5 beef or beef-cross calves to rear for the future.
Prefer polled beef as no horns to deal with, but will consider others. We have had both friesian and jersey cross, heifers and steers, so we are open to other options.
We can feed powdered milk for young calves, so age is not an issue if they are off their mums.
Not urgent, but would like something by July/August. Contact us if you have calves or will have an excess arriving soon.

Eggs any way, anytime

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

Eventually “Eggs & Anything” infiltrated dinner and our standards dropped even lower: the skillet was dumped on the table along with a pile of forks, a few side plates - maybe, a tea towel as a napkin for the 8-year-old with the large lockdown appetite and away we went.

Lazy egg suppers have hung around in Alert Level 2 - minus the dinner dregs and skillet table service, and with the addition of an actual recipe: Turkish eggs, spicy red shakshuka and spiced bread egg in a hole.

Eggs, dukkah and garlic fried spinach is another favourite combo in our house. What's your favourite?

There's just 2 days left in our Annual Plan feedback window! Please take the time to read the information at this link and give us your thoughts by 5:30pm on Thursday June 4.

We are seeking feedback on our Annual Plan 2020-21, which is about the changes we have made in response to COVID-19. The plan includes a proposal to reduce the overall General Rate rise to 2.2% (inflation), and provide $3m in targeted relief. We are also seeking extra funding from central government.

These measures are intended to soften the economic blow delivered by COVID-19, and provide extra support to the District as it works to recover.

Te Tohu Toi Tangata - Bachelor of Humanities

Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with majors in Indigenous Studies and Policy. Through Awanuiārangi, Christina experienced a 3-month exchange programme at the University of Northern British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”

“The difference at Awanuiārangi is the whanaungatanga. Our kaiako cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment”. We are now taking enquiries for Semester 2.
