Adam’s expertise in the beef and lamb sector is especially important in these volatile markets. I look forward to working with him.”
Adam has previously served the organisation as a Sector Board member for AHDB Beef Lamb (then EBLEX) between 2010 and 2012, and has held a number of other prominent positions in the industry such as a member of the NFU National Livestock Committee, Chairman of the NFU West Midland Livestock Forum, and NFU Vice President.
Adam is a trustee of the Studley College Trust and was the first English ASDA beef scholar. His farm at Sambourne, near Redditch, Worcestershire, comprises sheep, a beef suckler unit and a beef finishing unit.
