Holstein Friesian New Zealand is an organisation built around its membership of over 750 farmers and breeders who belong to the various Branches and Clubs throughout the country.

From these regions, or ‘Wards’, a Board of nine is elected to represent the members at national level. The Board sets policies and provides direction for the Association. All Board Directors are dairy farmers and active breeders within the industry. General and ongoing business of the Association is handled by the General Manager and staff.
