Thomas Wornham

NFU Poultry Board member, East Anglia

Thomas farms a mixed arable and broiler unit in Hertfordshire.

Thomas has planted 5000 trees and hedgerows which complement the solar panels and biomass boilers to create a carbon neutral business.

Of the many challenges the sector faces, Thomas is interested in the board gaining a better understanding of the impact ammonia emissions could have on the sector, and how to resolve this before it becomes an issue.

In addition, he wants to continue promoting any technological improvements and engage with decision makers of poultry rearing standards.
