National Farmer’s Federation Membership

The National Farmers’ Federation’s (NFF’s) membership comprises all of Australia’s major agricultural commodities. Operating under a federated structure, individual farmers join their respective state farm organisation and/or national commodity council. These organisations collectively form the NFF.

Each of these state farm organisations and commodity council’s deal with state-based ‘grass roots’ issues or commodity specific issues, respectively, while the NFF represents the agreed imperatives of all at the national level.

As the only woolgrower organisation with membership of the National Farmers’ Federation, WoolProducers Australia is responsible for providing key policy advice on behalf of our members to Australia’s peak farm body.  The policy contribution to the National Farmers Federation includes environmental laws and regulations, industrial relations, taxation, international trade issues, economics and training.

WoolProducers provides direct wool grower representation and have nominated for the following NFF committees:

  • Farming Systems Standing Committee
  • Trade Standing Committee
  • Workforce Standing Committee
