As a Federated Farmers member you can play an active role in New Zealand's most successful advocacy organisation for pastoral farming.

Your support, through membership, helps the Federation gain the best possible outcomes for the agricultural sector.

Members can also participate in national, regional and community advocacy, helping influence key decision-makers to create better outcomes for profitable and sustainable farming.

Going it alone is not the best option when advocating for farming, whether on national or local issues.

It is your thinking, your considered analysis and your input into the farming issues which gives Federated Farmers its strength and mandate.

We may not necessarily agree on everything; that is part of being a democratic organisation. However, together we can accurately portray farming's real voice.

Where else can you stand up and be heard with fellow farmers in such a co-ordinated and powerful way?

Federated Farmers has gained extensive pragmatic and successful outcomes for farmers and their communities, which have allowed farmers to continue to run sustainable and profitable farming operations.

You can choose to voice your own views in isolation, but we have seen the real success which comes from standing alongside other farmers and fully engaging in issues facing you, your business and your community.

Federated Farmers is about getting involved and making a positive difference to our industry's outcomes.

Membership is a key farm asset in today's complex environment. The Federation needs you to make that individual commitment and you need the Federation working for you on all the off-farm issues that can have significant impacts on your business.

Be proactive, manage the big risks to your business and join Federated Farmers today.

To join Federated Farmers, call 0800 327 646
