Farmers thank Eoin Garden as he steps down

With Silver Fern Farms’ Annual General Meeting today, Eoin Garden, a stalwart of the New Zealand steps down from Silver Fern Farms Board after 16-years serving the cooperative; the last six years as its chairman.

“On behalf of Federated Farmers we’d like to thank Eoin Garden for his long service to the red meat industry,” says Jeanette Maxwell, Federated Farmers Meat & Fibre spokesperson.

“While we may have disagreements, Eoin has been nothing but respectful to me. He is a true gentleman.

“We need to remember that much has changed in business, society and the industry since the late 1990’s when he joined the Board. No one could have tweeted Eoin’s appointment to the Board as they can now about his retirement.

“Federated Farmers Meat & Fibre will look to call on Eoin’s institutional knowledge and we look forward to working with the new Board led by Rob Hewett, who succeeds Eoin at the conclusion of the AGM,” Mrs Maxwell concluded.
