UK - The NFU poultry board is looking for a new chairman after Charles Bourns failed to win the 75 per cent majority required to be re-elected.

Mr Bourns, who farms in Gloucestershire, became commodity board chairman in 2003 after five years as committee chairman.

The process of electing a new chairman will now take place at the next board meeting in May.

NFU director of policy Martin Haworth thanked Mr Bourns for his service to the NFU.

He said: "I would like to pay tribute to the hard work Charles has done over the past 14 years and I have no doubt he will continue to play an important role with both the NFU and the wider industry."
