INDUSTRY SECTORS: Real Farmers … Real Issues … Real Solutions; Federated Farmers represents the broad spectrum of the rural community, with seven industry groups representing the specific interests of Meat & Wool, Dairy (including sub-groups for Variable Order Sharemilkers and Variable Order Sharemilker employers), Arable, Rural Butchers and South Island High Country.
Each industry group has its own governance structure. Industry group councillors hold regular meetings to discuss issues, policy and solutions relevant to their industry sector. Each industry group is represented by a chairperson and a provincial representative who lead experienced, knowledgeable farmers in dealing with matters that impact on the business of farming. The industry groups are made up of real farmers who have a sound understanding of the sector challenges and who have access to the Federation’s advocacy resources and the key industry decision makers.
