FUW seeks nominations for outstanding dairy person in Wales

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

The Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) is once again looking to recognise an individual who has made a great contribution towards the development of the dairy industry and has become an integral part of the dairy industry in Wales.

To recognise such a person, the union is seeking nominations for its FUW Outstanding Service to the Welsh Dairy Industry award.

The winner will be announced, and the presentation made, at this year’s Royal Welsh Winter Fair on Monday, November 29.

FUW Carmarthen county executive officer David Waters said:

“There are a number of very worthy individuals in Wales who deserve this award and looking back we have had some fantastic nominations and winners.

So if you know of a person in Wales who has made a great contribution towards the development of the dairy industry and has become an integral part of it in Wales, then why not nominate them for this prestigious award?”

Nominations should be in the form of a letter or citation giving full details of the work and achievements of the nominee and need to be emailed, or sent by post, to the FUW Carmarthen office by Friday, November 12, 2021.
