“Whether it was in Westminster, Brussels or even further afield, Meurig always had what was best for British farmers and growers at the forefront of his mind and made it his mission to represent their interests to politicians, civil servants, the supply chain and the wider industry.

 

Honour

“He was acutely aware how important British farming was to the country in its role producing safe, traceable and affordable food to the public and he was driven by a desire to ensure British farmers were fairly rewarded for their work.

 

“Meurig is a passionate supporter of British farming and this always shone through in his work representing farmers and growers. I am proud to have worked with him as part of the NFU’s officeholder team and I want to congratulate him on receiving this honour.”

 

Others to be awarded included Dairy Crest chief executive Mark Allen OBE, for services to the dairy sector, and Armagh farmer John Henning OBE for services to agriculture.

Sally Bendall, Suffolk, was awarded a British Empire Medal for services to the agriculture sector and livestock farmer Lyndon Edwards was awarded an MBE for services to farming and the community in Monmouth.

 

Former principal and chief executive officer at Myerscough College Ann Turner was awarded an MBE for services to land based education and training, while estates supervisor also of Myerscough College Bernard Rimmer was awarded an OBE for his services to the agricultural community.

 

Volunteer case worker for the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Rural Support Group David Morgan was also awarded an MBE.
