Impact of Brexit to be discussed at Lincoln Farming Forum

The Lincoln Farming Forum will return for a second year to address the industry’s situation following the vote for Brexit.

Hosted by Nicholsons Chartered Accountants, in partnership with Perkins George Mawer & Co, the forum will take place at the Market Rasen Racecourse on Wednesday, February 15.

The event will focus on both the local and national impact of Brexit and take a general look at the world farming situation.

The industry, along with many others, is facing uncertain times ahead and many are eagerly waiting to learn more about the government’s plan for the future, especially future trade opportunities.

Many feel that the impact of changes to trade agreements would be more significant in the UK than changes to the existing agricultural subsidy regime.

This year’s speakers will also include Nick Sharp of Perkins George Mawer & Co, Hugh Taylor of Roadnight Taylor, and Sean Sparling, an independent agronomist.

Director for Nicholsons Richard Grayson, who has 35 years of experience in the industry, said: “Local farmers are always interested to know more about the agriculture sector and we aim to provide topical and thought-provoking information about their industry.”
