1,400 farming delegates gathered at the NFU 2017 conference to hear ministers and officials present a vision they believe will make agriculture robust outside the EU -- as long as Government makes the right decisions.
The National Farmers' Union conference brings together conventional farmers from all sectors. This year, the theme was the UK's withdrawal from the EU, and the conference's upbeat title was: Brexit: Ingredients for Success. The organisers have swiftly produced an online digest of proceedings, summarising the speeches and workshops, available here.
