The riders will be riding from Ngatea in the North Waikato to Bluff in the South on a 1400km cycle tour through rural New Zealand. All riders are from a rural background or work in the primary industry and are willing to share what they have learnt from keeping fit and how they fit it into their bust lives.

The second Unveiling...
'Spirit' our second cow was unveiled at the Wallace Art Gallery last week
Artist Paul Bradley, when describing the artwork said, “The tree is a symbol of both growth and of generations; a family tree.
The tree wraps around the person and speaks of the connection between environment and people. We depend on the land as it provides us with food, livelihoods and a place to be. One side of the cow features the rolling hills, the other features water; the Piako river; the birds are flying high -
symbols of possibility and freedom.”
A further 27 cows were unveiled and now we have a herd of 42.
'Spirit' will greet you as your arrive at our Morrinsville office.

‘Herd’ about the Herd of Cows?
CooperAitken is delighted to announce that we are the naming sponsor and founding member of the Herd of Cows? Morrinsville Street Art.
CooperAitken is working with Nicki Robb, Project Lead from the Herd of Cows? Project Team to bring together this community-driven initiative which will see life sized fibreglass cows produced, painted by artists and sponsored by local businesses and individuals. This unique, permanent art attraction is to create a point of difference for Morrinsville to demonstrate its innovation, vibrancy and our dairying heritage, while adding some flare and character to the town.
Maree Munro, CEO of CooperAitken said “We wanted to support this project as a thank you to the community, as we celebrated our 100 years in the town last year”.
Many local businesses are getting behind the venture and purchasing the fibreglass cows, which will be artistically painted by various artists, managed through the Wallace Art Gallery by Leah Murphy.
The brightly coloured ‘herd’ will be placed around the streets of Morrinsville in public places and in front of sponsors business premises.
A formal unveiling is expected at the Wallace Art Gallery in late March.
The Herd of Cows? Project Committee currently has 20 sponsors and is actively looking for more sponsors to “own their own cow”. If you would like to be part of this new venture and sponsor a cow please contact Nicki Robb, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 021 343 170.
