  9. Imports

    Unfortunately Ray, whilst there are a few decent breeders in NZ there are many who aren't. We barely have enough trainers let alone breeders and unfortunately I don't see a lot of young people knocking on the door to get into our industry. In my view if we relied on NZ breeding alone we would end up with 10 race cards and probably 9 of them being sprints with in a couple of years. Week in week out we struggle to get c5 middle distance races all over NZ if you take away the imported dogs you would be lucky to see a c2 middle distance race. On another note if it is the welfare side of things you are worried about do you think 100% of dogs bred in NZ make it to the races? there is a large percentage of dogs that don't and many have short careers because they aren't competitive. Are the Majority of these dogs finding homes? Be realistic if you enjoy having a industry in NZ the imports have to stay. Matt
  10. Greyhounds are not commodities

    I do understand your concerns and I suggested a way of potentially identifying who is affecting these statistics. You need to start somewhere with some rough figures. For example in the 2015 Greyhound Awards night Georgia Cole confidently said how many litters they had on the ground - as this was shown on trackside to the public Aaron Cross is going to come back to those statistics in the next year or so asking where all these dogs are. I agree with you that sustainability is a concern and by the number of dogs Cole is breeding, he is doing more than enough for anyone in the industry alone. I would like to know where their dogs end up. If you want to freeze Imports then you will need to freeze all breeding in NZ, as I state above, i am sure the number of litters being born far exceed the number of dogs being imported.
