Wool Industry Meetings Well Attended

Wool Industry Meetings Well Attended; Mandate Expected

The McKinsey Report meetings are being well received and attended by woolgrowers, according to Federated Farmers' Meat and Fibre Producers area representatives. The schedule of farmer meetings is almost complete in both the North and South Islands.

"These meetings have been well attended and well received by growers," said Federated Farmers Meat and Fibre Producers Chairman Chris Lester.

"The questioning has been robust, as have been the explanations by the McKinsey consultants. Farmers are keen to see the recommendations progress, and I would expect the August referendum to provide a powerful mandate to proceed," concluded Mr Lester.
