Beef + Lamb New Zealand is holding a series of talks around the country so farmers can provide feedback on any concerns raised at the group’s recent annual meeting. Nine remits were tabled at the March meeting, two were in relation to He Waka Eke Noa with nearly 49% of those who voted in favour of leaving the partnership. 44% were against leaving, and nearly 7% abstained. But only about 22% of Beef + Lamb NZ’s farmers engaged in the remit process. Group chair Kate Acland says Beef + Lamb wants to listen to what farmers are saying so the roadshows will run the length of the country from the end of May through June. Kate Acland says the main concerns are about the impact of layers of legislation and the relentless pace of proposed regulatory change.
