Farm secretaries from Suffolk were in Wales earlier this month for their national conference - a year before it heads to the county for its 50th year.

The Institute of Agricultural Secretaries & Administrators (IAgSA) met at Nant Gwetheyrn from March 9 to 12 for the event, hosted by the North Wales branch.

IAgSA Suffolk chair Jenny Pine said speeches from Teleri Fielding, a National Trust & Wales YFC Llyndy Isaf scholar currently managing a farm in Snowdonia for a year, and dairy farmer Abi Reader, co-founder of CowsOnTour, were inspiring.

A new IAgSA careers film about jobs in agri-administration is available on YouTube and features six East Anglian IAgSA members. Chadacre Agricultural Trust, Felix Thornley Cobbold Trust and IAgSA Norfolk Branch provided funding for the film, which was made by Green-Shoots Marketing.

The 50th conference is due to take place at Stoke By Nayland Hotel Golf Spa from March 8 to 10, 2019.
