Federated Farmers Presidential candidates
With Don Nicolson retiring at the Federation's Annual General Meeting on 1 July in Rotorua, Federated Farmers has
received four nominations for the position of National President.
"This will be the first contested election for the position of President since the early 1990's," says Conor English,
