Goats

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. 

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 - Chairperson, Carl King.
