Agriculture’s ambition to reach net zero by 2040 was high on the agenda when the NFU met Guildford MP Angela Richardson last week.

Livestock farmer and breeder Angus Stovold, of Lydling Farm, Shackleford, near Godalming, hosted the meeting, and there were also discussions around future farm support and the contentious Farming Rules for Water.

In attendance were Surrey NFU chairman Richard Keen, Surrey NFU group secretary Anthony Posnett and NFU South East adviser Ben Gibbons.

Mr Gibbons said: “Angela Richardson MP clearly enjoyed the tour of the farm and meeting Mr Stovold’s pedigree Aberdeen Angus beef herd up close. The MP would like to see net zero measures included in the new Environmental Land Management (ELM) scheme and she has also agreed to lend support to the NFU in challenging the Farming Rules for Water.”
