B+LNZ 2016-2017 levy rates unchanged

Beef + Lamb NZ

Red meat farmers will be pleased to hear that the Beef + Lamb NZ Ltd board has decided to keep the 2016-2017 levy rates the same as last year.

This means the levies, which fund and direct B+LNZ, will continue at $4.40 (excluding GST) for each head of cattle slaughtered (except bobby calves) and $0.60 per head of sheep slaughtered.

The levy, paid by beef, sheep and dairy farmers on livestock processed in New Zealand, goes on targeted programmes that deliver real results – on the farm, in the market, and at the policy table. A key part of the organisation’s strategic plan involves building a stronger presence in the regions to help it to stay connected with farmers, providing relevant tools, services and information.
