DairyNZ poll

Written by  Milking It

Talking about elections, the DairyNZ board election is shaping up to be a much more exciting affair.

Eight highly regarded candidates (including one sitting director) are vying for two seats on the industry-good organisation’s board.

One commentator remarked that at least four of the eight candidates could easily get farmer support to serve on Fonterra’s board.

DairyNZ election results will be known next week.
