Wayne Johnston was re-elected as President of the Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting yesterday.
Midlands farmer Marcus McShane continues in his role as Vice President of the TFGA.
Two new Board Directors were also welcomed yesterday after a ballot was held amongst members.
Strategic consultant Allison Horswill, of southern Tasmania, and north-east dairy farmer Andrew Aldridge will fill the positions left vacant by the retirement of north-west cattle producer Brian Stewart, and north-east dairy farmer Alan Davenport.
“I would like to personally thank Brian and Alan for their contribution to the Board, and welcome Allison and Andrew,” Mr Johnston said.
“The election process has ensured that the TFGA Board continues to be diverse and multi-skilled – all things that will benefit our organisation moving into the future.”
