Growing chicken meat sector joins NFF
THE National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) was pleased to welcome the Australian Chicken Growers Council (ACGC) as a member of agriculture’s peak representative body last month.
The ACGC represents contract chicken meat and turkey growers at a national level.
NFF president Fiona Simson said the issues chicken growers faced were common to many farmers and it made sense for their interests to be well represented in NFF’s policy and advocacy efforts.
“Having ACGC join the NFF, means we can get a more informed understanding of the challenges and opportunities before chicken growers and, as a result, be better able to advocate in their interests.”
