Here at Federated Farmers, we recognize that biosecurity measures are not simply implemented at our borders, they encompass a framework of international treaties, readiness, surveillance, incursion response and pest management. 

Federated Farmers work in the Biosecurity sector ensures that policy regarding biosecurity is informed by science, economics, trade and environmental factors in which we work closely with Government and industry organisations to ensure that regulations are practical and fair to the farmers involved. We continue to play a central role in the New Zealand biosecurity system.
