Variable Order Sharemilker Agreement Variable or lower-order share milk distribution contracts relate to any sharing agreement by which the parties negotiate the allocation of shares from the outset. If the “Sharemilker” provides a herd of less than 300 cows, the minimum percentage that the milk donor must receive is 21% or more, excluding expenses. The operator must provide an efficient milking and cooling system for herd milking (with the exception of accessories that must be specially provided by the “Sharemilker” (points 74 to 76). The “Sharemilker” must have the efficiency of the milking facility, cooling system and cleaning system checked each season by a properly qualified tester designated and paid for by the operator. This agreement gives the Sharemilker the power and responsibility to organize the machine test. The “sharemilker” must provide the result of the efficiency assessment to the farmer and, in the meantime, the farmer is not responsible for inefficient milking equipment. If the dispute is not resolved by mutual agreement within 20 working days of dispute resolution, the dispute between the parties is subject to arbitration in accordance with clauses 149-159. Prior to the leave or leave (or if the co-registrant is unable to meet the co-milker`s obligations due to illness), the co-registrant must arrange, at the milk donor`s expense, a competent person agreed by the operator to meet the obligations of the co-declarant during the co-registrant`s absence. The farmer cannot unduly delay the agreement. There are two parties to an agreement on share milk, the operator and the Sharemilker.
In essence, the parties enter into an agreement on the milk of shares on the basis that the “Sharemilker” is responsible for the operation on behalf of the owner, but does not own the land and receives in return a portion of the proceeds from the sale of milk and all that is produced in the countryside (for example. B the ensiling). As a result, the legal relationship between the operator and the operator is that of the principal and independent contractor, not the employer and the worker. The chart below “Dairy Receipt Share” provides an overview of the potential share of milk recipes to a range of milk prices under a flexible rate agreement. Cows must be of similar quality to livestock quality in the past three years, unless the parties have agreed otherwise and have reported on them in writing. Under this type of agreement, the farmer has more responsibilities; much of the cost and agricultural expenditure, as well as the provision of land, buildings, milking pumps, water facilities and supplies, tractors and agricultural equipment. On the other hand, the sharemilker does not make the herd available or provides only part of the herd. They provide work, bear the cost of delivery and cover some of the costs such as electricity and can provide a small amount of equipment such as bicycles or tractors.
In recent years, the dairy sector has been an integral part of the New Zealand economy and a milk distribution scheme has been a springboard for farmers who want to own farms themselves. The “Sharemilker” must maintain at all times a minimum standard acceptable to the operator with respect to the operation, cleanliness and efficiency of the farms, scales and milking edges, plants, utensils and equipment used for milking the herd, in order to ensure the highest value for the milk delivered. All cleaning products and cleaning costs must be provided and borne by the Sharemilker at milk expense. If this agreement is entered into with a sharing partnership and one of the partners dies during the duration of this agreement, the remaining partners will have the option to terminate the agreement immediately or after the end of the season, but the farmer has the prior option of terminating the contract within one month of the date of the death of the “Sharemilker” if the remaining partner or the remaining partner cannot remain satisfied. exploitation.
