The conference, titled Brexit: Shaping the future of Welsh agriculture, will take place between 11am and 3pm on Monday 22nd January at the International Pavilion on the Royal Welsh Showground in Llanelwedd, Builth Wells.

John Mercer, NFU Cymru Director, said: “I am delighted that we have managed to assemble such a stellar line up of speakers who will give members the opportunity to explore how we can build a productive, profitable and progressive agricultural industry in Wales.

“Brexit is likely to have a significant impact on the way we farm in Wales, and I encourage Welsh farmers to join us for the conference and be a part of the discussion over the industry’s future, along with other key stakeholders.

“We are grateful to Barclays for supporting us in hosting this event.”
