Meat & Wool

Representing New Zealand's meat and wool producers

The Meat & Wool section is focused on achieving a profitable and sustainable meat and wool sector.

Members face a wide range of challenges: from increasingly discerning consumers, public focus on the environmental impacts of farming,  animal welfare and disease concerns,  to a changing health and safety and employment environment.

The Members of the Federated Farmers Meat & Wool industry group are represented by the Industry Group council consisting of the Meat & Wool chairpersons from each of our 24 provinces.

They are headed up by a five member executive and lead by the Meat & Wool chairperson.
