Sheep and cattle farmers have the chance to question directors and key staff from Beef+Lamb NZ (B+LNZ) later this month at a “referendum roadshow” at Wellsford Community Centre, on Tuesday, June 29.
The evening event will provide farmers with an update on B+LNZ work generally and research and development in particular, ahead of this year’s levy referendum – every six years, farmers vote on whether they want the farmer-owned industry organisation to continue to exist.
The main speaker at Wellsford will be B+LNZ’s farming excellence general manager Dan Brier who speak on how research investment helps improve productivity and lower a farm’s environmental footprint.
The roadshow runs from 5.30pm to 8.30pm and light refreshments will be provided. Registration is essential – go to https://events.beeflambnz.com/home or email Rachel.Jukes@beeflambnz.com
