Fairlie: An open invitation – Governments proposed taxing of livestock emissions
November 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Federated Farmers in conjunction with Beef and Lamb NZ have decided to host a public meeting to be held in the Mackenzie Community Centre, Fairlie to outline our position and reasons for this.
But most importantly we are doing this to help people with submissions to the government’s consultation process with a view to getting some fairness restored. This invitation is open to the public and we believe it is important that we get a good turnout from local businesses so they can understand the impact on our rural community.
Important Fact: The dairy and the red meat sectors earn a combined $29 billion per year for New Zealand, and a 25% reduction in production (i.e., $7.2 billion) equates to a 3rd of the NZ Education Budget.
