When will the ADHB cereals ballot vote be.?

As I posted on the blood sucking ahdb thread the other day, David Handley seems to think they’re re writing the rules so that dairy won’t get a vote, if they do that for dairy, it’s likely they’ll do the same for other sectors

Despite the good work that they do for farmers they also collude with AIC and red tractor to restrict market access. And will be using my money to do it. I can’t endorse that as it affects my business in a negative way. So will have to vote Accordingly

What AHDB ballot?!

I thought that the ADHB was ballotting it’s levy payers
They’ve done the Potato and Horticultural sections
So I think it’s a matter of time for the Cereals and other sectors to hold a vote

they surely can’t hold a ballot for two sectors, find they don’t like the result, change the rules so that the remaining sectors don’t get a vote

therefore I was just asking if a cereals vote date had been set

and if not who is the ombudsman to take it further ??

What about turkeys?...

... as in 'voting for Christmas', as the AHDB would essentially risk their very existence by allowing a vote.

They didn’t just hold a ballot for potatoes and horticulture it was forced upon them by levy payers asking for one, forum member @White rabbit was heavily involved, there’s also a very long winded topic about it in the ahdb section on here titled blood sucking ahdb or something similar..............although you might not feel particularly enlightened for reading it.

Any sector can demand a ballot at any time by getting a certain % of levy payers to demand one. Thats how the potato and horticulture groups got their vote.

However as a result of the consultation process that the AHDB did a few years ago, and losing the 2 levy votes last year, they committed last December to giving all sectors a regular vote on the continuation of each sector levy, at least once every 5 years. I'm not sure if when the first round of votes will be has been agreed yet though.

Who qualify to be a levy payer

If red tractor went, then would youstill be pushing for ahdb abolishment?

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
