This year’s Dorset County Show is delighted to welcome NFU Vice President David Exwood as a special guest on Saturday 2nd September.
David Exwood, who was elected to the role as NFU VP in February 2022, told the Dorset County Show: “This is a great event to showcase the quality of Dorset produce grown and reared by county farmers who work to impeccably high standards.
Events like Dorset County Show are a vital ingredient in the farming calendar, bringing together people from across the rural community to celebrate food, farming and the countryside.”
During the two-day County Show (2nd and 3rd September) a host of machinery dealerships, land agents and farming suppliers will join to meet with Dorset farmers along with special events planned for the farming community. There are also new agricultural trade options to offer farmers even greater networking event, no matter the scale of the business.
David Exwood added: “Dorset County Show is a good place for farmers to meet the public and showcase what they do and we’re always delighted to see such quality animals on show in various competitions.
This is also an important opportunity for the NFU to catch up with farmers, especially following the pandemic and to discuss with them all the work and campaigning that is happening on their behalf.
Farming remains vital to the economy, creating jobs, producing food and is important to the wider supply chain and allied businesses. The iconic Dorset landscape has been shaped by generations of farmers and growers who work the land and care for the farmed environment.”
A Members Q&A with David Exwood will take place in the Members Pavilion right after the Grand Parade of Livestock from 15.45pm on Saturday 2nd September.
