Governance on New Zealand farms
Farms in New Zealand continue to increase in value and output. With this increase many consultants and professionals are questioning whether traditional ownership and governance models continue to be suitable. To form the basis of such a discussion it is essential to have information on the current situation. To discover the basic arrangements a nationwide survey was carried out over the latter half of 2013 with a mail questionnaire having being sent out in June 2013. With a response rate of 36% well above the normal, some confidence can be placed in the information collected.
