Following a competitive recruitment process, James Porter has been appointed as the new chair of the NFU PIP (Poultry Industry Programme). 

James is a broiler producer, rearing a million birds per cycle at his farm in Lincolnshire, alongside other family enterprises including arable, pigs and a commercial feed mill.

As part of the 2019-21 PIP, James originally joined the programme to increase his experience and knowledge in different parts of the industry.

James takes over from previous chair James Mottershead, who stood down following his election as chair of the NFU Poultry Board earlier this year.

Shaping the future of the sector

James said: “I believe there is an exciting future for the poultry sector and the PIP provides a great opportunity for participants to meet like-minded people while expanding their knowledge.

“There is a big part for young people to play in the future of our industry and I’m excited to help them get the most out of the opportunities that the programme provides.”
