Farmers say they are feeling frustrated by uncertainty from the government.

Hundreds of people marched to Parliament yesterday, with lobby group 50 Shades of Green asking to be consulted by the Government on farming decisions.

Waikato dairy farmer Roger Blunt told Mike Hosking there's a lot of distrust and confusion.

He says farmers feel like policies are being thrown at them, with no real time frames.

"There is a lot of distrust from farmers towards the governments over their policies, there is a lot of confusion out there."
