Send Us Your Proxy Votes


Mark Masters and Hilary Webber announced today that they were available to receive proxy votes for dairy farmers who would not be attending the NZ Dairy Group and Kiwi meetings on 18 June.

“It’s really important for all of us to vote on 18 June”, said Mark Masters and Hilary Webber, spokespersons for Farmers for a Better Dairy Deal.

“Most dairy farmers will vote by proxy. We would be very pleased to receive your proxy vote.”

“It would be a privilege to vote on your behalf”, said Mr Masters and Ms Webber.
