On our cover, dairymen walk with their cows at what seems a leisurely pace. A newborn calf carried on the shoulder symbolises hope. Their day not over, the herd is still on the move. In the past our national herd has given us bullocks for farming, manure for fuel and fertiliser, and cattle for milk. With the care and husbandry of our dairywomen and men, they continue to march ahead contributing to a better future for our nation.
