FARMING AFFAIRS

NFU   Vice   President   Guy   Smith   and   Michael   Oakes,   NFU   dairy board   chairman ,   were   in   Birmingham   on   27th   September   to speak    to    youngsters    at    the    Percy    Shurmer    Academy,    on Longmore    Street.        This    was    World    School    Milk    Day ,    a worldwide    event    to    celebrate    the    benefits    and    success    of school   milk,   and   talked   to   pupils   about   what   they   do   on   their own   farms   and   the   significant   role   of   dairy   in   promoting   child health and nutrition. The   school   visit   saw   the   farmers   meet   around   60   pupils   from Year   2   about   dairy   products,   what   happens   over   the   hedgerow, the    nutritional    benefits    of    dairy    and    exciting    jobs    in    the farming and food industry. Mike   Oakes   has   lived   and   worked   in   the   green   belt   between Birmingham    and    Bromsgrove    for    around    30    years    and    is    a tenant   of   the   Bournville   Village   Trust,   set   up   by   the   Cadbury family.    He    farms    around    350    acres,    slightly    larger    than    the city’s   Sheldon   Country   Park,   milking   his   herd   and   growing   grass and maize (sweetcorn) to feed his animals. LEGAL SUCCESS ! DCLG   Minister   Marcus   Jones   has   announced   that   he   will   take measures   to   amend   rating   legislation   to   ensure   that   nursery growers   will   be   exempt   from   business   rates    as   Parliament intended. This   follows   an   NFU   member’s   long-running   legal   case,   finally decided   in   the   Court   of   Appeal   in   2015,   which   determined   that nursery   grounds   growing   under   cover   did   not   qualify   for   the agricultural exemption to business rates. Good news for many local businesses.

The Government has released a further housing and planning consultation this month but, disappointingly, this does not include their final plans for updating permitted development rights for agricultural building conversions (Barn Conversions). The number of prior approval applications, where  farmers can convert agricultural buildings to residential use, fell by 22% in April to June 2017 (compared with the same period for 2016)	In terms of total numbers; 328 prior approval applications were given the go-ahead in the spring and 218 were refused. Meaning that more agricultural to residential prior approval applications get refused compared to planning applications more generally (where the overall approval rate is 83%).
Awards   for   Chaddesley   Farmer’s   Sheep   at   Royal Three Counties Show Bryan   &   Sue   Powell    were   awarded   a   first,   a   second and   overall   reserve   at   the   Royal   Three   Counties Show,   ‘Butchers   Competition’.   In   order   to   do   this   they had     to     make     entries     at     the     Worcester     Market competition,   from   which   one   sheep   is   selected.   That then    goes    to    a    butcher    who    slaughters    it    and    the whole    carcass    is    taken    to    the    showground    for    the ultimate  judging by an independent butcher. Their awards go to show the high quality of their flock.   CONGRATULATIONS
