CLA welcomes Future of Farming report

25 October 2013

The CLA has responded to the Future of Farming report.

The Association said the Future of Farming report shows a clear recognition of the need for the industry to modernise.

CLA President Harry Cotterell said: "The farming industry needs to be open to new thinking and new ways of doing things if it is to attract a new generation of bright dynamic farmers. This is the only way in which the sector will thrive.

"Therefore we welcome this forward-thinking report which looks at changing the image of farming, highlighting the vast and varied career opportunities available in the industry as a whole.

"We look forward to working with Government on developing the thinking and ideas contained in the report."
