Farmers now have just seven days to vote in the Beef + Lamb New Zealand referendum.
It’s been great to see many farmers have got out early to vote, but there are still a lot who haven’t, and we don’t want anyone to miss out.
Whether it’s their first, second or third referendum, I urge every farmer to have their say on the future of B+LNZ.
Voting closes midday next Friday, 9th July.
Get your vote in the mail by 6 July or you can vote on-line right up to midday on the 9th.
It’s more important than ever that industry-good organisations such as B+LNZ exist to represent farmers’ interests and make it easier to get on and farm.
Over the next six years, B+LNZ has planned an ambitious programme to support farmers. We will be rolling out our new free farm plan covering water, climate change, biodiversity and soils.
We will also be investing in genetics to improve farmers’ productivity but also to reduce their environmental footprint. We’ll be attracting, training and retaining people across the sector. And we’ll be ramping up the Taste Pure Nature country of origin brand across our global markets.
Remember, without a sheepmeat or beef levy – if there’s a ‘no’ result – there will be no organisation solely dedicated to working on behalf of sheep and beef producers.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to decide if you want B+LNZ to continue to exist. Every vote counts.
