Pride, Passion and Parochialism: A History of FMG 1905-2005
By Russ Standing
This narrative records the history of the Farmers' Mutual Insurance movement of New Zealand from 1905 until the centennial year 2005, celebrating 100 years of this unique farming co-operative. With foresight and true crusading spirit, the founding pioneers of the New Zealand Farmers' Union focused on establishing provincial mutual insurance offices to benefit farmers throughout the entire Dominion of New Zealand.

Following representations to the New Zealand Government by the Farmers' Union, known then as `the Farmers' Parliament', a Bill was introduced providing empowering legislation under the Mutual Fire Insurance Act 1903, and in 1905 warrants were issued to four provincial Mutual Insurance Associations enabling them to transact business.

This chronological history is a documentary of the Otago, Taranaki, Wellington and Hawke's Bay Mutual Insurance Associations, the Dairy Industry Insurance Agency Limited, the Primary Industries Insurance Company Limited and amalgamated Farmers' Mutual Group. The story focuses on many highly committed individuals associated with the farming co-operative and events contributing to 100 years of
Farmers' Mutual Insurance in New Zealand.
