Calling all farmers! Register on the Beef + Lamb New Zealand electoral roll and have your say on the big issues affecting our industry.
As the industry organisation representing New Zealand’s sheep and beef producers, we invest farmer levies to help grow the industry today and for future generations.
To make the best decisions on behalf of New Zealand farmers, we need to know what you think. B+LNZ is your organisation.
If you're on the electoral roll you can:
- vote in the six-yearly referendum to decide how levies are collected and invested
- keep up to date with critical information from B+LNZ.
Subject to a declaration of livestock numbers, you may also:
- nominate, second and vote in B+LNZ director elections
- vote at B+LNZ annual meetings.
Who can register
To be eligible to vote you need to own sheep or cattle in New Zealand as at 30 June.
