Federated Farmers, initially through Mohair New Zealand and latterly through the wider-based Goat Industry Group, has been significantly involved in advocating for the whole goat farming industry on resource management matters for over a decade. This work mainly involves submitting for less stringent controls on goat farming in general.

Many proposals stem from an ignorance among regulators of modern goat farming techniques and practices and it would be fair to say that a sizeable majority of our submissions have achieved success with these people once they have been 'brought up to date'.

Federated Farmers policy team has proved invaluable in assisting with submissions throughout New Zealand. Without Federated Farmers, many goat farmers would have been regulated out of business.

Federated Farmers Goats represents the interests of Goat farmers through their industry group executive, headed by Mohair New Zealand Inc.
