Farmers across Wales are invited to virtually attend NFU Cymru’s Vision for Welsh Upland Farming Conference.

The event will take place on Tuesday, November 24, 2020, at 1:00pm and reveal the findings of a survey carried out by the union earlier this year of those living and working in Wales’ less favoured area (LFA).

Some 78% of land in Wales is designated as Less Favoured Area (LFA), but these same areas provide a rich contribution to the environmental, economic, social and cultural prosperity of Wales and its communities.

NFU Cymru LFA Board chairman Kath Whitrow said: “Wales’ uplands are of significant importance to Wales’ economic, environmental, social and cultural well-being.

"The research NFU Cymru has conducted has further highlighted the crucial role of the uplands, as well as the concerns held by those living and working in these areas.

As part of this work, the Vision for Welsh Upland Farming report will propose a series of key asks to policymakers that are required in order to deliver a productive, profitable and progressive future for Welsh upland farming.

“I’m pleased that NFU Cymru has undertaken this important work and I’d encourage anyone with an interest in the uplands to log in to the conference to hear more about the insights that we’ve gained from this research.”

Those interested in attending the event are encouraged to register their interest with NFU Cymru.
