BRITISH BEEF AND LAMB - THE REAL FACTS

Did you know that beef production in Western Europe is 2.5 times more efficient in managing carbon than the global average because of our climate producing lush grass, which cows love?   Not only do British farmers keep us fed with tasty food, they produce our food to some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world, while caring for and shaping the nation's treasured landscapes.

FOOD AND FARMING IN THE NEWS

2019 started with a bang at the Oxford Farming Conference, where NFU President Minette Batters called on Government to protect food standards after the UK leaves the EU. She was interviewed by all the major news channels.


This month the four UK farming unions, which includes the NFU, NFU Cymru, NFU Scotland and the Ulster Farmers’ Union, wrote a letter to MPs outlining the immediate impacts a no-deal Brexit would have on food and farming in Britain.


Following the defeat of Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, NFU President Minette Batters was interviewed live on BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today highlighting the consequences of a no-deal Brexit for British farming.
