Meetings will take place from March 19 for members to speak up on post-Brexit agricultural policy.
Members of the NFU have been urged to have their say on the Government’s command paper through a series of local consultation meetings.
The paper sets out the government’s strategy for post-Brexit agricultural policy which will succeed the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
It came as Secretary of State Michael Gove said there were ‘huge opportunities for those in agriculture to play the leading role in shaping the future strategy’.
Meetings will kick off on Monday (March 19) and be held by the NFU until April 18 as part of the union’s Framework for Success.
NFU president Minette Batters said the NFU wanted to make sure ‘each and every one’ of its members had an opportunity to have their say.
“This consultation is one of the most significant developments for the UK Government’s agriculture policy in decades and paves the way for a new domestic agricultural policy to be created,” she said.
“It is vital this new policy ensures that British farming has a profitable, productive and resilient future.
“Together, we can ensure that government hears the voice of farming and supports our vital role in delivering safe, traceable and affordable food to Britain as well as protecting our unique countryside.”
