Better NFU group holding farmer meetings across the country

Campaign group Better NFU will be on tour across Britain during February, in the run up to the NFU elections on 28 February. 

Founder members David Handley and Derek Mead, who are standing for the two top positions in the NFU, will be speaking at a series of meetings with farmers to outline their alternative manifesto for the union. 

The meetings will be open to all farmers and those involved in the agricultural community – not just NFU members
