History

The National Farmers' Federation (NFF) is the peak national body representing farmers and, more broadly, agriculture across Australia. It was formed in 1979 from the amalgamation of the Australian National Cattlemen's Council, the Australian Farmers' Federation, the Cattlemen's Union of Australia, the Australian Woolgrowers' and Graziers' Council, the Australian Wheatgrowers' Federation, the Australian Wool and Meat Producers' Federation, the Australian Vegetable Growers' Association and the Australian Seed Producers' Federation. Its first conference took place on Friday 20 July 1979, where Sir Donald Eckersley was elected inaugural President. Its current membership includes both State-based farmers' associations and national commodity councils, with agricultural companies as associate members.
