Baaccoli to the rescue of meat industry

Desperation over a child’s refusal to eat vegetables was the catalyst for the discovery of Baaccoli which will revolutionise sheep farming and return the meat industry to profitability.

Baaccoli, a new breed of sheep which combines the nutritional properties of broccoli with those of meat has been the subject of a top secret project at Invermary Research Centre in North Otago.

The research team is led by Dr Truly Clever who said concern that her daughter would develop scurvy because she wouldn’t eat her vegetables planted the seed for the project.

“She loves meat but I couldn’t get anything green or orange to pass her lips,” Dr Clever said. “When I asked her why she said, ‘I don’t need to because the lamb eats the greens and I eat the lamb.’

“That made me realise I had to find a way to add the vitamins and fibre from vegetables to sheep.”

Dr Clever said it had taken several years for the research team to develop the breed but it was now ready for commercial release.

“We started working with a variety of vegetables but found broccoli was the best and that’s what led us to naming the new breed Baaccoli,” she said.

“This will revolutionise the meat industry and stem the tide of dairy conversions.

“The foundations of the frozen meat industry started in North Otago and now we’re building on that with the launch of Baaccoli which will change the way we eat for ever.

    Rabbo – Dr Dagg was part of the team and enlisted some of the Trevs to help with the taste tests.

    I much prefer the daughters solution as I eat other meats and and am living proof of the theory as I have never had scurvey.
