New Beef+Lamb directors get the thumbs up

Federated Farmers congratulates the election of both Andrew Morrison and George Tatham to the Board of the industry good body Beef+Lamb New Zealand.

“On behalf of my colleagues we’d like to congratulate Andrew Morrison and George Tatham for being elected unopposed,” says Jeanette Maxwell, Federated Farmers Meat & Fibre chairperson.

“Both Andrew and George join Beef + Lamb at a critical juncture in our industry’s future. It is great to see talented people on the up; Andrew being the current Federated Farmers Southland Meat & Fibre chairperson.

“We have also just seen new farmer directors elected onto the two meat coops while Federated Farmers has just started member consultation on our own Meat Industry Options: A Discussion Paper.

“We all look forward to working with them to bring about a successful and profitable red meat industry,” Mrs Maxwell concluded.

An electronic copy of Meat Industry Options: A Discussion Paper can be obtained from the Members Only section of the Federated Farmers website.
