Montgomeryshire NFU Cymru members recently met to discuss the new bovine TB rules and regulations.

The meeting, which took place at The Elephant and Castle, Newtown, Powys, was an opportunity for members to discuss the new rules and regulations surrounding bovine TB in Montgomeryshire with Dylan Morgan, NFU Cymru Deputy Director and Head of Policy.

Robert Jenkins, NFU Cymru Montgomeryshire County Chairman said: “With the new rules and regulations coming into force on October 1st this year it was a good chance to hear from Dylan Morgan about what they will entail.

“We all need to work together to ensure that this disease doesn’t keep spreading and I’d like to thank Dylan for agreeing to come along and speak with us about this extremely important topic.”

A video clip was also shown during the meeting showcasing case study examples that effectively ‘bring to life’ how the agricultural industry is a key contributor to all seven well-being goals within the ‘Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015’, in a way that is unparalleled by any other sector.

Mr Jenkins added: “It is important to note that many of the wider benefits that farming, and the presence of a vibrant and dynamic Welsh agricultural industry, provides are not always recognised in conventional markets, and do not attract a return from the marketplace. They are, nonetheless, central to the well-being of the people of Wales.”

The video was launched during a special NFU Cymru Welsh Food & Farming celebratory event, kindly sponsored by Simon Thomas AM, held at the Senedd.
