#FarmingMatters top of agenda with Carmarthen farmers

Farmers from Carmarthenshire discussed the most critical #FarmingMatters facing the industry, including Brexit, the future for young farmers, succession and shared farming, the amalgamation of large retail food stores and the impact upon suppliers, at their recent annual general meeting.

The event, which was held at Llanarthney Village Hall, heard from FUW head of policy Dr. Nick Fenwick, Wales YFC Vice chairman and Chairman of Rural Affairs Dafydd Jones, Agri-advisors Manon Williams,  and Cled Richards from Agri-Angels.

Newly-elected FUW Carmarthenshire county chairman Philip Jones, said:

“We enjoyed a successful evening with a lively discussion on many farming matters and I would like to thank the panel for their valuable contributions.

“When it comes to Brexit, many of us still feel in the dark but it was good to hear that the FUW on behalf of its members is doing all it can to influence politicians where possible and through its lobbying work is ensuring that the voice of the Family Farms of Wales are being heard in London and Cardiff.”
