D-Day For Dairy Mega-Merger - Could The Vote Be Headed For The Courts?

- Last week, ‘Farmers for a Better Deal’ (‘the Group’) distributed a proxy form as a leaflet in various provincial newspapers.

After discussions with NZDG on Saturday morning, the Group obtained an interim injunction from the Wellington High Court against NZDG. See..
