The Government has approved border class exceptions for an additional 200 dairy workers and 50 vets to enter New Zealand. The move was welcomed by Federated Farmers’ employment spokesman Chris Lewis, but he reminded the Minister that the dairy sector is short between 2000 and 4000 workers. While Minister Damien O’Connor says he is aware that the dairy and veterinarian sectors are facing workforce pressures and he thinks these border exceptions will go a long way towards relieving those pressures.
