Bradshaw, who is an arable farmer from Essex, has been a part of the NFU officeholder team for four years, holding previous positions as both deputy president and vice president.

Joining him in office is David Exwood as deputy president and Rachel Hallos as vice president.

NFU president Tom Bradshaw said: “It is a deep honour to be elected president of the NFU and the 46,000 members we represent will be my absolute focus as I lead this superb organisation.

“Profitable production, and the stability and clarity which allows NFU members to plan for an reinvest in their farming and growing businesses will always be my priority.

“This sits at the heart of delivering sustainable, high-quality and high-welfare food for our country. In the run up to the general election we have the overwhelming support of the public and all political parties must put a plan in place for home-grown food.”

Bradshaw said: “I also want to focus on forging ever-closer connections with NFU members on the ground. My message to our membership is simple: this is your organisation. We need to hear your views and we need your input. United we are a powerful voice.

“I would also like, on behalf of all NFU members, and I suspect, the public, to thank our outgoing president Minette Batters, for her years of dedication to the NFU, service which has led to outstanding successes.

“We are in a challenging time for agriculture in England and Wales, but it’s also a time of great opportunity, and the NFU will be at the heart of delivering results for our members.”
