Cow capital - Morrinsville

It’s not every day of the week that you see a herd of colourful cows standing around a main street, and that’s exactly what Morrinsville is aiming for. The first herd of cows features 15 cows painted head to toe in a rainbow of Resene colours, finished off with Resene Uracryl GraffitiShield. Not content to stop with 15, another herd of cows is already underway.

The CowParade has visited New Zealand before, with each cow sporting coats of Resene before being displayed as a temporary installation during the 2003 America’s Cup. Those cows were auctioned off for charity and went their separate ways to new homes.

Unlike the Auckland parade, these cows aren’t going anywhere. When you’re passing that way, make sure you stop by Morrinsville and check out the most colourful herd of cows you’re ever likely to see.
