Cows to beef up hospi­tal

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery -

Mata­mata farm­ers have the chance to sup­port the New Wing Project at Pohlen Hospi­tal by pledg­ing a cull cow.

El­ders Mata­mata Sa­le­yards has jumped on board with ‘‘Beef­ing up Pohlen’’, agree­ing to take no com­mis­sion on pledged cows.

Live­stock rep­re­sen­ta­tive John Price said El­ders was proud to sup­port the project and hoped lo­cal farm­ers would con­trib­ute.

‘‘We are a lo­cal yard and we are lucky to have our own hospi­tal in Mata­mata – it’s a won­der­ful as­set to the com­mu­nity,’’ he said.

‘‘You never know when an on­farm ac­ci­dent or a car crash could land you in hospi­tal so I hope the farm­ing com­mu­nity gets be­hind this.’’

Nine cows have been pledged so far and lo­cal car­ri­ers have of­fered to cart the pledged cows free.
