Current levies

B+LNZ is funded and directed by farmers via commodity levies paid on all sheep, beef and dairy cattle processed in New Zealand.

We invest your levies in programmes designed to support a confident sector with improved farm productivity, profitability and performance.

Your levy goes on targeted programmes that deliver real results – on the farm, in the market, and at the policy table.

A key part of our strategic plan involves building a stronger presence in the regions to help us stay connected with farmers. That way we can ensure we're providing tools, services and information that are relevant to you and add value to your farming business.

We are focused on continuing to find more effective and efficient ways of delivering benefits to you and safeguarding the future of our industry.
