NFU North East Regional Director Adam Bedford described the meeting with Mr Hailey as “excellent” with discussions covering farming, trade and politics.

Later, the delegation visited Daniel M’Mailutha and his team at the Kenya National Farmers’ Federation (KENAFF) who represent 2 million farmers across Kenya.
