FUW's open meeting to discuss CAP


Farmers are invited to hear the latest developments on farm payments and CAP reform during an open discussion next Tuesday (March 18) at Llety Parc, Aberystwyth, organised by the Farmers' Union of Wales Ceredigion county branch.

FUW director of agricultural policy Dr Nick Fenwick will give an explanation of current understanding as to how the proposed new scheme will work and there will be an opportunity to ask questions about any concerns farmers, tenants and landowners may have.

Dr Fenwick said: “There is still a great deal which is uncertain as some of the more detailed elements of the rules have still to be released, but we have a clear picture regarding most of the implications of CAP reform.”

FUW Ceredigion county executive officer Caryl Wyn-Jones will also be available throughout the meeting to answer any questions.

Refreshments will be available between 7pm and 7.30 when the meeting will start. FUW members are welcome to bring friends and neighbours.

Miss Wyn-Jones said: “With significant changes across the board within the agricultural sector, it’s vital that these changes and, more importantly, their implications are understood fully and clearly. I urge all farmers, landowners and tenants to come and discuss any concerns or issues."
