National Farmer’s Federation Membership

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) 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.

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.

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

  • Economic Policy and Farm Business Standing Committee
  • Farming Systems Standing Committee
  • Trade Standing Committee
  • Workforce Standing Committee

More information about the National Farmer’s Federation can be found here.
