Mitsubishi giving away goats

Watch the goat!

MMNZ general manager of sales and marketing Peter Wilkins believes the New Zealand recovery is in the hands of the rural sector and goats, like Mitsubishi Tritons, are hardy, versatile units.

“Goats improve farm productivity by providing an environmentally friendly defence against noxious weeds and they’re a lot cheaper than toxic sprays.

“Goats also provide export commodities that can help improve our balance of payments. They grow a fine micron fleece, much like the renowned Merino, which can be used to produce high-quality garments. Goat’s milk provides a nutritious alternative for the growing number of lactose intolerant people and while goat meat is seldom featured in Western restaurants, developing countries consume vast quantities,” said Wilkins.

“And, most importantly, there is no such thing as Goat Flu – so no threat to tourism. It’s hard to see a downside,” he added.

“At MMNZ, we are aware that three years of drought has severely depleted sheep and beef populations, so what better time to ‘float the goat’?” said Wilkins. “We’ll supply a free goat with every Triton sold before August and do our bit to loosen the grip of the recession.

Wilkins says on the off chance that the purchaser already has enough goats or feels that goat herding is better left to those in drier climes, Mitsubishi will supply a “no goat package” consisting of a five-year/100,000km extended warranty, five free WOF inspections, 5000km road user charges, five years of roadside assistance and $500 of genuine or approved Triton accessories.
