Meurig Raymond will take over from Peter Kendall as NFU president, the NFU has announced.

Raymond, whose mixed Pembrokeshire farm produces beef, dairy, lamb, combinable crops and potatoes, was previously the union's deputy president. He fought off a challenge from former vice-president Adam Quinney for the top post.

During the campaign, he said his top priority would be "food security and recognition along the food supply chain of the low returns to farmers, particularly when our farmers produce to the highest possible standards".

Wiltshire beef farmer Minette Batters will take over from Raymond as deputy president, while Quinney's role will be filled by Essex mixed farmer Guy Smith.
