NFU Cymru members in Pembrokeshire will hear from Tom Bradshaw, NFU combinable crops chairman, at the next county meeting.

At the meeting, which will begin at 6.30pm on Monday, July 8, and be held at Penfeidr, Castlemorris, Haverfordwest, by kind permission of the Raymond family, Tom Bradshaw will outline the union’s work in the arable sector.

He will discuss the work being undertaken by the NFU on climate change, including the union’s ambitious goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions across the whole of agriculture in England and Wales by 2040.

The meeting will also include a tractor and trailer tour of crops grown at Penfeidr including winter wheat, oilseed rape, spring barley, winter barley and potatoes.

Tom has a small owned farm which is run alongside a larger contract farming business growing a range of combinable crops across 1,450 hectares in north east Essex.

He was lead farmer on the BBC Harvest Live series and, alongside his national NFU duties, he is also chairman of the East Anglia crops board. He was previously co-opted onto the combinable crops board to further the industry’s understanding and use of on-farm technologies such as GPS and soil mapping.

Clare Morgan, NFU Cymru Pembrokeshire county chair said: “I’d like to thank Tom for agreeing to come such a long way to speak to us. I’d also like to thank the Raymond family for hosting the event. This is an open meeting, with a hog roast and light refreshments, and I do hope you will all come along and hear what Tom has to say.
