The fat of the land

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Dave Johanssen and his daughter Olivia milk 320 cows a day on their West Coast farm at Ahaura, each of them producing some 27 litres of milk a day. Johanssen has been milking cows for four decades, and the kids are on a similar path, taking turns with the milking to earn pocket money.
