The tree is a symbol of both growth, and of generations, a family tree. The tree wraps around the person and speaks of the connection between environment and people. The land provides us with food, livelihoods, and a place to be. We depend on the land. This sustainability of this relationship is a challenge we collectively face. One side of the cow features the rolling hills, the other features water, the Piako river. The birds are flying high - symbols of possibility.

CooperAitken is dedicated to supporting the local communities where we are based – Morrinsville, Matamata and Thames and when the Herd of Cow opportunity arose we were delighted to become the naming and founding sponsor. Supporting this project was a thank you to the local community, as we celebrated 100 years of providing Morrinsville with accounting services in 2014.View website
