PROGRESS on CAP reform and the SOS Dairy campaign will come under the spotlight next week when the NFU’s deputy president visits Teesside.
Meurig Raymond will be meeting with Stokesley and Cleveland members on Monday in Middlesbrough and on Tuesday he will be in Northallerton.
In addition to outlining the current state of play on CAP and the dairy sector, he will look at the impact of this year’s disastrous weather patterns on farmers before moving on to causes of optimism for the region.
NFU North Riding and Durham County advisor Laurie Norris said: “Next week offers a good opportunity to meet one of the NFU’s top team.
“Mr Raymond is actively involved in representing farmers at the highest level – both at home and abroad – so can offer a fascinating insight into the challenges and opportunities facing farmers over the coming months.”
The meetings take place at:
Monday December 10 at 7.30pm at The Treebridge Hotel, Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, TS7 0NS.
Tuesday December 11 at 12.00 noon at The Allerton Court Hotel, Darlington Road, Northallerton, DL6 2XF.
Both meetings are open to all NFU members.
