Appointment of National Farmers' Federation CEO 25 January 2010 DAFF11/084L

I welcome the appointment of Matt Linnegar to the position of CEO of the National Farmers’ Federation, announced today by NFF President Jock Laurie.

As Minister I enjoy a close working relationship with the National Farmers’ Federation in their work representing farmers and primary producers.

I would like to congratulate Ben Fargher on his six years of service as CEO. His dedication and work to the National Farmers’ Federation is highly commendable.

I congratulate Matt on his appointment and I look forward to working with him in his new role and continuing the Government’s strong relationship with the NFF.
