Members can find out about the NFU’s work at county, regional and national level on issues including spiralling input costs, labour availability, rural crime, trade deals and future agricultural policy. They will also have the chance to elect county representatives for the NFU’s regional commodity boards covering livestock, dairy and combinable crops.
NFU East Anglia Regional Director Zoe Leach said: “I would urge members to attend their annual county meeting. We’re facing an incredibly challenging period for British farming and this is a key opportunity to hear from, and question, a member of the NFU national officeholder team.
“These will be my first annual county meetings as regional director and I am looking forward to meeting members and to hearing their views.”
