Brecon and Radnor MP, Chris Davies has showed his support for farmers in Brecon and Radnor and throughout Wales by pledging to #BackWelshFarming at the Royal Welsh Show.
Chris Davies MP met with NFU Cymru officeholders at the Llanelwedd showground on Monday 24th July to discuss how he could actively support the Welsh agricultural industry through the challenging times ahead.
NFU Cymru’s #BackWelshFarming drive encourages the public and politicians to support Welsh farmers by championing the industry and pledging to buy Welsh produce. The long-running campaign links in with the Union’s #ProudToProduce message at this year’s Royal Welsh Show, which sees farmers displaying colourful bale stickers and gate banners to highlight the work they do in producing Wales’ food, environment and landscapes.
Chris Davies MP said: “Welsh farmers are the country’s unsung heroes; they work hard every day of the year to produce the nation’s food, care for the environment and sculpt the picturesque landscapes that Wales is famous for. I’m proud to support our country’s producers and #BackWelshFarming. As part of this pledge, I will be encouraging people in Brecon and Radnor to join me in supporting this important campaign.”
NFU Cymru President Stephen James added: “We are extremely grateful to Chris Davies MP for pledging to #BackWelshFamring during his visit to this year’s Royal Welsh Show. There are challenging times ahead for the Welsh agricultural industry and having the support of Chris and knowing he will champion our cause with his constituents in Brecon and Radnor is welcome news for the nation’s farmers.”
