It was a pleasure to attend a positive meeting with the Montgomeryshire branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales to discuss their #FarmingMatters of concern.
The meeting was held on Monday October 17 at Welshpool Livestock Market and I thoroughly enjoyed hosting a question and answer session with members of the Union.
FUW Montgomeryshire County Executive Officer Emyr Wyn Davies, said:
“We enjoyed taking Mr Thomas on a tour of the market, which is reputed to be the largest Prime Lamb market in Western Europe. I would like to thank him for meeting with our members and we had positive discussions on #FarmingMatters, such as the importance of County Council Holdings, bovine TB, government bureaucracy and the potential implications Brexit will have on our local community.”
I would like to thank the Montgomeryshire branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales for their hospitality and I look forward to working with all farming unions over the Fifth Assembly term.
