Gypsy Day brings cow poo to roads

In a bid to keep the roads clear ahead of Gypsy Day, Waikato farmers are being urged to keep their stock off the green feed.

Gypsy Day occurs in the week leading up to June 1, and involves the mass transportation of cows around the country's roads as farm contractors relocate their stock for the new season.

Waikato Regional Council's senior transport planner, Isy Kennedy, says most farmers are careful and do a good job of moving the stock cleanly.

However, she says effluent spillage still occurs on Waikato roads, presenting environmental, road safety and personal health issues.
