The New Zealand countryside is pastoral and beautiful. The animals are clean, calm and healthy. Never before have I looked at a herd of cattle and been struck by the beauty. Beauty in the aesthetic, but also in the simplicity. Of course, livestock management is remarkably complex and above my head, but fundamentally it is simple: Grass grows abundantly in New Zealand. Cattle graze it and in the process their hooves aerate the soil and their excrement fertilizes the grass. Here are a few pics of New Zealand Grass-fed Beef Cattle.
