Change brings opportunity for young farmers says Ed Ford, Chairman of the National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs (NFYFC)

NFYFC's response to the presentation made by Michael Gove at the Oxford Farming Conference regarding changes to subsidies

"NFYFC acknowledges the industry changes ahead but we are also excited by the opportunities this offers the next generation of farmers.

"Many YFC members had the chance to discuss their farming experience and share their thoughts about future policy considerations with Defra during regional and county discussion groups at the end of last year. We are pleased to see many of those ideas are being taken into consideration.

"The industry needs dynamic and determined farmers to lead the way and develop this incredible industry – with the right tools and support we can do this."
