The Ministry for the Environment's website now seem to be password
protected. I'd like to see that report. Apparently there is a farmer up the Matakitaki valley that has 11000 cows, some of which are allowed to walk
freely through a stream that drains into the river. Murchison's water supply
is a well on the banks of the Matakitaki. This river feeds into the Buller.
It seems crazy that people are allowed to farm using these methods at all!!
