General Elections - Federated Farmers has launched its own Manifesto for the 2011 General Election and unlike the political parties, isn't soliciting for votes, but wide-ranging support for policies that will advance the country economically and environmentally.
Local Elections - With candidates lodging nomination forms for the 2013 Local Elections, Federated Farmers has released ‘The Farmers’ Manifesto,’ outlining its local government priorities. The Manifesto has also been presented to David Shearer, Leader of the Opposition.
farmers speak for farmers backed by policy experts
The National Board meets regularly and comprises our President, Vice-president, three Industry Group chairpersons and two National Board 'members at large'. The National Council meets twice a year and comprises the National Board with representatives from both the provinces and industry groups (as in the photograph).
Policy is member driven. Members' views are canvassed by staff and elected representatives who formulate submissions that help local and central government decision making.
The Federation's aim is to add value to the business of farming for our members and encouraging sustainability through best practice. To find out more about Federated Farmers, please call 0800 327 646 (0800 FARMING).
