Meat & Wool New Zealand gazettes new levy rates

Media Release

5 October 2009

Meat & Wool New Zealand has notified new levy rates for the next year which are effective from 1 October 2009.

They will be $0.45 cents per head of sheep slaughtered and $3.80 per head of cattle slaughtered.

Both the goatmeat and wool levies were lost on a one-farmer-one vote basis in the recent referendum.

Meat & Wool New Zealand Chairman, Mike Petersen said the goat levy stopped on 30 September 2009, however a wool levy of $0.03 cents per kilogram would continue to apply until 18 April 2010 when the existing levy order runs out.

“While we have stopped the wool-related activity that could be ceased immediately, in other cases there are contracts to manage and an orderly exist of these is being negotiated. Collecting a wool levy through to 18 April 2010 will be required to meet these costs.”

Mr Petersen said no levy would be collected on dags from 1 October 2009.
