Speaker: David Hughes – Dairying, my part in its downfall
David has spent the last 47 years giving business advice to dairy farmers. After graduating in 1976 with a 1st class honours degree from the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, David spent 11 years as an Agricultural Adviser with ADAS working in Cheshire and Northumberland. After leaving ADAS in 1987 he has worked in the private sector doing much the same job. He has worked with a wide range of clients from County Council small holders to peers of the realm, and pretty much everything in between! He set about retiring in 2021 but hasn’t managed it yet and in his words has “given up trying”! His talk, laced with his usual dry humour, will review some of the challenges that he has come across during his long career and discuss some of the many lessons that he has learned.
