NFU Live header_75171

As part of your NFU membership, this autumn you can access a series of fortnightly virtual live events featuring NFU officeholders and experts who will navigate the issues that are affecting British farming, now and in the future.

Called NFU Live, these virtual sessions will see your NFU experts cover topics including future farm support, net zero and water, as well as a live Q&A session with the NFU President.

We’ll bring you the latest information and insight from our meetings with government and update you on policy developments to help you plan your business decisions in the months and years ahead.

Each session will end with your chance to put your questions to our panellists, with them answering these live on air.
