Livestock sector unites to develop sound agricultural policy

By Patrick Hurst 

 

The livestock industry has galvanised itself in a bid to help shape future farming policy in post-Brexit Britain in collaboration with the Government.

Key sector stakeholders from across England, Wales and Scotland gathered in Birmingham last week to plan a route forward for farming after Brexit, agreeing they must work together to positively support the UK and devolved Governments in the many negotiations and decisions to come.

 

Chris Dodds, executive secretary of the Livestock Auctioneers Association (LAA), said a collaborative approach between the livestock sector and Governments ‘can only be beneficial’ at such a crucial time for the industry.

 

Mr Dodds said: “We agreed regular meetings of this nature will now take place going forward to discuss trade, support and future regulatory issues and developments.

 

“This is a positive opportunity for the livestock sector to shape future policy post-Brexit and help Governments as much as possible by working in a collaborative way to deliver a profitable and dynamic industry.

 

“The group has agreed to work through the practical implications of the various policy development aspects ahead, so issues can be discussed with Governments in a united manner, while maintaining the respective organisations’ responsibilities to members.”

 

Mr Dodds said the 10 organisations agreed it was far too important an issue for the industry to approach it in a ‘fragmented’ way.

 

Organisations in attendance included Farmers Union of Wales, Tenant Farmers Association, National Beef Association, National Sheep Association, National Pig Association, NFU Scotland, Scottish Beef Association, Central Association of Agricultural Valuers, Institute of Auctioneers and Appraisers in Scotland and LAA.
