Adam Quinney appointed AHDB beef and lamb sector board chair
Adam Quinney has been appointed to the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) as chair of the beef and lamb sector, replacing Stuart Roberts who resigned in August.
Worcestershire farmer, Quinney will join the board effective immediately. He has already previously served the organisation as a sector board member for AHDB Beef and Lamb (then EBLEX) between 2010 and 2012 and has been a member of the NFU National Livestock Committee, chairman of the NFU West Midland Livestock Forum, and NFU vice president.
AHDB chairman Peter Kendall said: “Adam shares my passion and ambition for UK agriculture, his knowledge of the whole industry will be invaluable to us as we look to deliver greater value for levy payers. Adam’s expertise in the beef and lamb sector is especially important in these volatile markets. I look forward to working with him.”
Stuart Roberts resigned as AHDB Beef and Lamb sector board chair this summer after just six months in the role in protest over how agricultural levies were being used.
