Visiting the Suffolk Show, Dr Dan was pleased to attend a special Brexit Briefing Breakfast event hosted by the NFU. President of the NFU, Meurig Raymond and their Director of EU Exit and International Trade, Nick von Westenholz set out the NFU's aims and ambitions for British agriculture post-Brexit.
Key issues which factored highly on the "wish list" are trade agreements that work for British farming and in particular, paying heed to the outstanding record of welfare and environmental production standards that are currently adhered to here. In addition, access to a competent and reliable workforce was cited as a key priority, as was the importance of creating a domestic agriculture policy which promotes growth and drives productivity.
Dr Dan regularly meets with farmers and food producers in Central Suffolk and was pleased to offer his support again this morning at Suffolk's flagship event, the annual Suffolk Show. This year saw the show bathed in sunshine and visitors came out in their droves to enjoy all the very best that Suffolk has to offer.
