Protesters shared their views with Farmers Guardian on what the march could achieve and what they wanted to see from the UK’s Government to support agriculture.
"Kids like to come to the farm but they are not interested in taking farming up as a vocation," Mr Ruck said.
"We want to be more competitive in the global market than we are. We want more of a [focus] on young entrants."
He added next farming’s next generation was ’dying out’ and smaller farmers were in decline.
"We are operating at a loss and we can only sustain that for a certain period," Mr Edgar said. "The basis of today is to get the trouble the agriculture sector is having into the public eye and making politicians aware something needs to be done."
Mr Edgar said he would most like to see the Government regulating imports.
"The Government has given a monopoly to supermarkets," Ms Hawken said.
She pointed to increasing specifications from supermarkets over the size and appearance of goods and the extra burden this placed on farmers.
Mr Hole said it was great to see farmers and members of the industry delivering the messages about farming’s issues to Government.
"It is an opportunity for people from every sector to show their support," he said.
He claimed it was important for the Government to listen to what was currently happening to the industry at a grass-roots level.
