Fellowship of RAS awarded to Belton Farm Managing Director

Justin Beckett, Managing Director of Belton Farm, has been awarded a Fellowship of Royal Agricultural Societies Award (FRAgS) by The Council for Awards of Royal Agricultural Societies (CARAS) in view of his ‘outstanding personal achievements and continuing record of service to agriculture’.

The objective of CARAS is to recognise distinguished achievement in agriculture and related land-based industries. The Awards embrace not only practical farming and the development of new husbandry practices, but also research, technology, economics, education, farming care, communication and administration.

Justin was presented with his award by RASE President Jim Godfrey at the House of Lords on 6th March. Justin commented, “This is a great personal honour, but it is also an honour to accept this Award in recognition of the great work happening in British agriculture as a whole.”
