The event, to be held at Nantyffin Hotel, Llandissilio, gets underway with hot beef rolls at 7pm, with the conference commencing at 7.30pm.

Ms Batters runs a tenanted family farm in Wiltshire. The mixed farming business includes a 100 cow continental cross suckler herd, and a small herd of pedigree Herefords as well as sheep and arable.

Diversification includes the conversion of a 17th century tythe barn into a wedding and corporate events venue, and horse liveries. Minette co-founded the campaigning initiatives Ladies in Beef and the Great British Beef Week.

During her address, Ms Batters will discuss her current role within the union and the ongoing policy work.

NFU Cymru president, John Davies will also address the meeting and discuss the key issues currently affecting the Welsh agricultural industry.

Pembrokeshire NFU Cymru county chairman, Clare Morgan, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Ms Batters to our annual conference. It will be interesting to hear the work that the NFU is involved in with Brexit looming as we head towards the Article 50 deadline on March 29.”

NFU Cymru thanked HSBC bank for sponsoring the series of 11 county conferences across Wales.
