Levy deadline looms

2:04 pm on 30 May 2014

Dairy farmers and sharemilkers have just over 24 hours to get their votes in on whether or not to continue paying an industry levy that funds Dairy NZ.

Dairy NZ chief executive Tim Mackle says about 50 percent of farmers have voted so far and they're hoping more votes flood in on Friday and Saturday.

Mr Mackle says sharemilkers have been voting in lower numbers than owner operators - but he says they don't usually get to take part in industry votes.
