    Farmers says a stock control bylaw being proposed by the Tasman District Council, will be impossible for farmers to comply with

    Farmers says a stock control bylaw being proposed by the Tasman District Council, will be impossible for farmers to comply with


    The council wants farmers to hold sheep 50 metres back from a road, while moving stock until all cars have driven past.

    There's also a suggestion the new bylaw has a 'no-poo' requirement when shifting stock.

    Nelson Provincial Federated Farmers President Stephen Todd says it's unworkable.

    He says there may be the odd incident of sheep and cars colliding - but keeping them 50 metres back wouldn't change that.
