University lecturer to address NFU Cymru conference


Prysor Williams, a Lecturer in Environmental Management at Bangor University, will be guest speaker at Ceredigion NFU Cymru Annual Conference on Wednesday, 22 January 2014.

Starting at 7.30pm the meeting will be held at the Ty Glyn Aeron, Ciliau Aeron. Prysor is a farmer’s son from Pandy Tudur, near Llanrwst and is closely involved with running the family farm.

Prysor will speak on the topic of agriculture and will discuss the debate on whether the industry is the environment’s answers or its problem? He will also address the conflict between agriculturalists and environmentalists, the challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment and the options for doing so.


John Davies, the Ceredigion NFU Cymru County Chairman said, “We are most grateful to Prysor Williams for agreeing to come and speak at the conference and also to HSBC Bank for sponsoring the event. I hope we will get a good turnout of local NFU Cymru members. Please also encourage your friends and neighbours to come along.”
