Cattle nappies

Trucking companies in Southland have united to claim that they shouldn't be responsible for stock effluent discharges from their trucks when transporting cattle, after one of their number was fined $750 by Environment Southland for waste discharges in Invercargill.  New Zealand Road Transport Association spokesman Tony Friedlander made the obvious point that 'You can't really expect livestock to keep their legs crossed for the whole day'. 

They're missing a trick for a major new product line.  What self-respecting trucker or farmer would be seen dead without his cows sporting all-new comfort-fit Cattle Nappies?  We could call them Cattle Diapers for the American market, of course.
