THE Meirionnydd branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales is to put the spotlight on the future of the red meat industry post Brexit at its annual general meeting.

Themed ‘Red Meat – the next 20 years’, those joining the meeting can look forward to hearing from experts such as Gwyn Howells, chief executive of Hybu Cig Cymru; Rhys Davies, chief executive of Farmers’ Marts, Dolgellau; Wyn Williams, senior livestock buyer at Dunbia and Dewi Williams, partner at the recently established local abattoir ‘Cig Eryri’ at Cae Iago Ffestiniog.

The AGM is to be held at Neuadd y Parc, Parc, near Bala on Friday, January 31 at 7.30pm.

FUW Meirionnydd county chairman Sion Ifans said: “The meeting is held at a crucial milestone - January 31 - our last official day as members of the European Union.

“It should be a thought-provoking event, where we will look at the challenges facing the red meat sector in the coming years.

"The event is open to all, and we very much hope that as many as possible will be able to join us that evening.”

Those attending the evening can look forward to a short presentation from each of the speakers, as well as a question-and-answer session.
