New president and deputy president for NFU Cymru

Mr Davies will be joined at the top table by new deputy president Aled Jones, a dairy farmer from Mid-Gwynedd.

 

During his time in office, Mr Davies said he wants to ensure Welsh agriculture gets a good Brexit deal; tackle bovine TB; address water quality in Wales; hold retailers to account on food labelling; ensure a fair price for everyone in the food chain and create greater opportunities for the next generation of farmers.

 

“I am looking forward to the task of leading the union over what is sure to be a challenging time for the agricultural industry in Wales as the UK negotiates its departure from the European Union”, he added.

 

Champion

 

“There is no time to waste and I can assure members and the wider industry we will be doing everything in our power to champion the industry and lobby politicians in Cardiff Bay, Westminster and Brussels to ensure the best future for Welsh farming.”

 

Deputy president Aled Jones, who is currently chairman of the Cattle Information Services and a member of the Welsh Dairy Leadership Board, said he was ‘honoured and deeply humbled to have been elected’.

 

“I look forward to working with John and the NFU Cymru team over the next two years”, he added.

 

Others elected

 

The meeting of the council also saw the union finalise its wider officeholder team. Those elected include:

  • Peter Francis, Legal Assistance Scheme Legal Board
  • Haydn Evans, Organics
  • Gareth Richards, Milk
  • Richard Tudor, Less Favoured Area (LFA)
  • Perkin Evans, Combinable Crops
  • Hedd Pugh, Rural Affairs
  • Victoria Shervington-Jones, Poultry
  • Elwyn Evans, Tenants
  • Wyn Evans, Livestock
