Dairy professional Rob Brazendale has joined Perrin Ag as the consultancy firm looks to strengthen its support of farmers and growers.
Voting opened last week and farmers have until October 19 to cast their votes.
Electionz.com returning officer Anthony Morton is urging farmers to vote. "I encourage all dairy farmers to have their say and vote for the candidate they want to see on DairyNZ's board," says Morton.
DairyNZ levy payers will receive their voter pack information via email next week.
"Dairy farmers should look out for this email and learn more about the candidates before they vote."
DairyNZ's board consists of five farmer-elected directors and three board-appointed directors. Appointments are for three years. This year Rowarth is retiring by rotation and re-standing.
The successful candidate will be announced at DairyNZ's annual meeting in Hawera on October 20.
