ABSTRACT
The growth of world exports over the past two decades has provided an increasing opportunity for governments to make their activities more effective. The New Zealand Meat Producers Board, established by the nation's sheep and cattle raisers in 1922 under the authority of a government statute, has through the years engaged in most of the activities now handled by governments and has done so as a private organization. In a sense, the Meat Board has been a hybrid between private and public. The Board has become, in a sense, a government of the industry whose policy debates have paralleled parliamentary decisions. Of the Board's nine members, six are elected by the electoral college, two are appointed by the government and one is chosen by the dairy producers. In its market support activities, the Board is the only organization in the world promoting the sale of meat on a genuinely international scale. The Meat Board has undertaken most of those activities that in other countries are increasingly provided by governments.
