Grow­ing chicken meat sec­tor joins NFF

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - NEWS -

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.”
