Beef + Lamb directors appointed

1:58 pm on 27 December 2013

Two new farmer directors have been voted on to the board of Beef + Lamb New Zealand - the industry body funded by sheep and cattle levies.

The successful candidates are Andrew Morrison, from the Southern South Island electorate, and Wairarapa farmer George Tatham, from the Eastern North Island electorate.

Mr Morrison is also the current Federated Farmers Southland Meat and Fibre chairperson.

Both were elected unopposed, after chairman Mike Petersen and the Southern electorate's Leon Black stood down.

They will take up their positions on the board at Beef + Lamb's annual meeting in March.
