How is the board made up?

Farmers elect six directors, one to represent each of the three electorates in the North Island and the three electorates in the South Island.

Terms are for three years, and elections are rotated.

Two directors are appointed from the meat industry and an independent director, as well as an associate director also sits on the board.

 

To contact a specific B+LNZ staff member, use the email address format: [firstname].[lastname]@beeflambnz.com

The chairs and deputy chairs of regional farmer councils form the National Farmer Council Executive. Find out who is on the National Farmer Council Executive from your region below. To contact them, go through your local B+LNZ Extension Manager – details here (PDF, 568 KB).
