The Farmers’ Union of Wales will highlight its latest campaign "Supporting Family Farms Since 1955" at its pavilion alongside the main ring during this year’s Royal Welsh Show (July 21-24).
The campaign coincides with this year's UN International Year of Family Farming that high lights the potential role family farmers can make to eradicating hunger, preserving natural resources and promoting sustainable development.
The FUW and the British Association of Shooting and Conservation (BASC) have also teamed up to help farmers deal with pest control on their land and visitors to the pavilion will be able to see how the union and the largest shooting organisation in the UK is working together to develop this exciting opportunity.
“Pest damage is a fact of life for many farmers and effective control can be time consuming and expensive so pop in and have a chat with BASC at the show to see how we can help with your pest control,” said FUW deputy director of policy Rhian Nowell-Phillips.
Once again the FUW is proud to sponsor the Welsh Black Cattle section at the show. “We fully recognise that as Wales’s only native breed of cattle, the Welsh Black is steeped in history,” said FUW president Emyr Jones.
Plans are also being made for a Land Rover to be on display outside the pavilion to highlight the range of FUW Insurance Ltd services. New caterers have been secured for this year’s show and, as usual, members and friends of the union are welcome to pop in for a free cuppa.
The FUW is currently urging farmers to put proposals forward to the £6 million Nature Fund and at the union's pavilion during the Royal Welsh Show they can discuss their ideas or find out more about the scheme.
The Nature Fund will be focussed on seven geographical areas and funds five key activities. There is a minimum allocation of £50,000 and it also requires collaborative action.
Anyone having bright ideas or is interested in joining a collaborative group should come along to the FUW pavilion for a chat.
