Rachel Stewart is the 2016 Canon Media Award Opinion Writer of the Year. The former president of Wanganui Federated Farmers is off-side with much of the rural community she calls her 'tribe' after raising her concerns about the environmental impacts of dairy farming, and this month she told the Wanganui Federated Farmers conference that 80 percent of dairy cows have to go.
