Oakes joins panel as Dairy Show asks ‘are we ready for Brexit?’

NFU dairy board chairman Michael Oakes will be on the panel as a Q&A at The Dairy Show asks if the sector is ready for Brexit (Bath and West Showground, October 4).

Mr Oakes joins FFA chairman David Handley and Kite Consulting’s John Allen for the debate at the Dairy Farmer / Farmers Guardian stand at 11am.

They will share insights on how they think the sector will be affected by Brexit and what farmers should be doing now to prepare.
