Shocking Sharemilker compliance revealed

Shocking Sharemilker compliance revealed

With just over a week until it closes, Federated Farmers is blowing the whistle on the four-fifths of Sharemilkers who are yet to vote in the 2014 DairyNZ Levy referendum.

“The last time I checked only 20 percent of sharemilkers had voted and that’s a shocker turn out,” says Neil Filer, Federated Farmers Sharemilkers section chairperson.

“It’s like seeing only 100 people physically in Eden Park for the upcoming England test.

“I need to send a rocket to our guys to pull finger and vote. We’re the ones that get the most from the levy as it sets up the best possible industry for us.

“I tell you this, if the troops don’t vote, that could be taken as indifference to brilliant things like Progression Groups.

“If you snooze on this vote we’ll all lose unless our guys do something about it.

“A vote takes much shorter time than boiling a kettle. You can do it online or by fax and there’s still time to do it by post as well. Only if you get you’re ‘A’ into ‘G’ that is.

“If you need assistance then just call the 2014 Levy Hotline on 0508 666 557. They can sort any issues out for you there and then.

“It won’t even cost you a cent because it’s your money funding this levy vote,” Mr Filer concluded.

All the information on voting can be found at http://vote.dairynz.co.nz
