Grassland Farmer Of The Year

Awards Evening

Grassland Farmer of the Year 2022 – Awards Evening

The Awards Evening for the BGS Grassland Farmer of the year competition was held on on Tuesday 1 November at The Royal Oak Hotel, Welshpool.

The winners were announced as dairy farmers Aled and Owain Rees from Treclyn-Isaf in Pembrokeshire. Representing Cardigan and District Grassland Society, Aled and Owain run a 300-cow organic dairy herd on 105 hectares that forms part of a larger 385-hectare organic farming system. 

In what was a very close competition, the runners-up were Claire and John Beckett from Ulster Grassland Society, and Jeremy Way and Kate Lywood from West Sussex Grassland Society. In summarising, Hugh McClymont stated that it was good for the future of the dairy industry to see young farmers involved in decision making and future planning on all three farms.
