Wairarapa farmer Kate Wyeth has been appointed this year’s associate director on the Beef + Lamb New Zealand board.

Wyeth, who alongside her husband James, farms a 380ha sheep and beef farm in the Northern Wairarapa has a background in farm consultancy with BakerAg and is a facilitator on the Agri-Women’s Development Trust and chairperson on the Opaki School Board of Trustees.

She says she is excited by the opportunity to learn from and contribute to B+LNZ’s governance team.

“I have been intrigued and inspired by B+LNZ’s ability to adapt, reinvent and lead in the agriculture sector over the last 10 years.

“I believe that can be attributed to creative, courageous and insightful governance and I want to be part of that.”

The associate director is a one-year role established by B+LNZ to give aspiring leaders in the agricultural industry as an opportunity to observe and participate in governance. 

Wyeth joins a board of six farmer-elected directors, two meat industry-appointed directors and one independent director.
