NFU President Minette Batters was honoured for her Outstanding Contribution to British Agriculture at the 2021 British Farming Awards.
The awards, hosted by Agriconnect, parent company of Farmers Guardian, Arable Farming, and LAMMA, showcase the diversity and adaptability of the UK’s farming community.
More than 700 farmers and industry specialists attended the ceremony in Birmingham on 21 October.
The Outstanding Contribution to British Agriculture award has previously been won by Lord Curry, Caroline Drummond of LEAF, livestock industry stalwart John Geldard, and Yeo Valley’s Mary Mead.
Sponsored by NSF, the award was in recognition of Minette's 'tireless work campaigning for the future of British agriculture in recent years, taking farming’s message to the wider public and also political influencers'.
