Latest Farm Employee Wage Survey Results Released

29 April 2002

Federated Farmers has just completed its sixth survey of farm employee remuneration rates as an exclusive service to its financial members. This survey is backed up by Federated Farmers team of employment advisers that provide free, on the spot advise to members.

"This survey is the only comprehensive survey of farm employee remuneration rates currently available and provides valuable information on both permanent and casual employee positions," says Federated Farmers Policy Manager Gavin Forrest.

"The survey report contains detailed analysis of information provided in February/March this year by a random selection of employers throughout New Zealand.

"Covering fifteen employee positions including farm managers and casual employees, the survey provides both national and regional for the dairy and sheep, beef and arable sectors.

"As well as detailed information of the basic salaries of employees the survey details the total value of remuneration received when additional benefits such as accommodation and power are taken into account.

"The success of this year's survey is due in no small measure to the provision of a participants travel prize by Signature Travel won by Mr Alan Coughlan of Waipukurau."

The Farm Employee Remuneration Survey information is available to Federated Farmers members by calling 0800 327 646. Similar urban employment surveys cost as much as $1,000 each.
