Emyr Jones re-elected FUW president


Emyr Jones

Bala beef and sheep farmer Emyr Jones was re-elected as the Farmers' Union of Wales' national president at the union's grand council meeting in Aberystwyth.

Mr Jones has held the position since June 2011. His deputy, Glyn Roberts, of Padog, near Betws y Coed, and three vice presidents - Brian Walters (Carmarthen), Brian Thomas (Llanfyrnach, Pembrokeshire) and Richard Vaughan (Tywyn, Gwynedd) - were also re-elected.

They form the presidential team that sits on the union's finance and organisation committee together with re-elected North Wales special member Eifion Huws (Holyhead) and newly-elected South Wales special member Brian Bowen who replaces Lorraine Howells (Rhymney, Gwent), the recently elected Welsh Black Cattle Society president.

Brian Bowen

Mr Bowen, 54, was brought up at Penwenallt Farm, Cwmcou, Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire, and now farms at Pencoedcae Farm, Princetown, near Tredegar, Blaenau Gwent.

He is chairman of Llangynider Common Association and also chairs its Glastir committee. He is an executive member of two other commons associations (Buckland Manor Common and Gelligaer & Merthyr Common) and a director on the board of the Hay & Brecon Farmers agricultural co-operative.

He said: "I am very interested in representing farmers in discussions concerning the future of the CAP and have taken part in meetings with MPs, AMs and MEPs to put across their views.

"I believe it is also up to my generation to ensure that family farming in Wales continues and is attractive to the younger generation, such as my son."
