High Country

In recent times Federated Farmers High Country has been strategically involved in several pest-related issues and was instrumental in bringing changes to the Biosecurity Act. Among other things, this saw the introduction of the “good neighbour” principle being applied to Government agencies.

Federated Farmers High Country represents the interests of South Island high country farmers through their industry group executive.
