Fonterra dairy cooperative has a new farmer director on its board.

South Canterbury dairy farmer Leonie Guiney would join sitting directors John Monaghan and David MacLeod who were returned in the just completed Fonterra board elections.

Ms Guiney farms near Fairlie where she is a director of four dairy farming companies. She was a strong critic of the co-operative's Trading Among Farmers plan, introduced several years ago.
