NFU Election Results


NFU President Peter Kendall has been re-elected for a third term after securing more than 75 per cent of the vote from NFU Council members during their Annual General Meeting in Birmingham today.

Voting also saw Meurig Raymond re-elected as Deputy President to serve his third term and dairy board chairman Gwyn Jones elected to fill the vacant Vice President post. The new office holder team will serve the NFU for two years.

Speaking after the elections acting NFU Director General Martin Haworth said: “This is a very important and challenging time for British agriculture and I am looking forward to working with the new office holder team.”

NFU President Peter Kendall said: “I am pleased to be working with Meurig for another term and I would also like to welcome Gwyn to the team. He’s been dairy board chairman for six years and he brings a vast amount of experience and a successful track record of working in Europe on dairy and animal welfare issues. We have lots of work ahead not least the reform of CAP and dealing with bovine TB.

“As this year’s conference has demonstrated productive agriculture is at the heart of the political agenda and it will be our job to ensure the next government fully understands how farming can deliver both the food we need and protect our environment.”
