Not only that but 65% of farmland in the UK is only suitable for grazing livestock to produce food, giving the UK some of the most sustainable meat and dairy production systems in the world.

FOOD AND FARMING IN THE NEWS

NFU President Minette Batters’ New Year message looked ahead to 2020 in farming, highlighting the NFU’s net zero plans and our asks on maintaining high food and farming standards on food imports post-Brexit. The message was picked up by national print titles, including the Mail Online and Daily Telegraph.


NFU President Minette Batters spoke to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme ahead of her speech at the Oxford Farming Conference this month. She explained the importance of bringing together experts in a Trade and Standards Commission to scrutinise future free trade agreements and protect our animal welfare and environmental protection standards, as well as ensure we do not import food that would be illegal to produce in this country.


NFU Deputy President Guy Smith talked to BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine programme about the dangers of sky lanterns following a fire at Krefeld Zoo in Germany that was suspected to have been caused by a Chinese lantern. He emphasised the dangers sky lanterns pose including fires and cases of wire getting into animal feed, and called for all UK councils to ban them.
