Siaradwr Gwadd / Keynote Speaker: Prof Davy McCracken

Ymunodd Davy McCrasken â SRUC 25 mlynedd yn ôl ac mae wedi bod yn Bennaeth Canolfan Ymchwil Bryn a Mynydd SRUC, ar ffermydd Kirkton ac Auchtertyre ger Crianlarich, am saith mlynedd a Phennaeth Adran Rheoli Tir Integredig SRUC am ddwy flynedd. Mae’r Ganolfan yn ceisio sicrhau bod y ffermydd yn darparu llwyfan ar gyfer ymchwil ac arddangos amaethyddiaeth amgylcheddol yn yr ucheldiroedd ac – yn gynyddol – amaeth-goedwigaeth. Mae Davy yn astudio rhyngweithiadau ffermio a bywyd gwyllt ac mae wedi bod yn gweithio ar bolisi amaethyddol ac amaeth-amgylcheddol ar lefel genedlaethol a rhyngwladol ers 30 mlynedd. Roedd yn un o sylfaenwyr y cysyniad ffermio Gwerth Natur Uchel ac mae llawer o’i ymchwil dros y blynyddoedd wedi bod i’r heriau a’r cyfleoedd sy’n wynebu systemau ffermio Gwerth Natur Uchel ledled Ewrop.

Davy McCracken joined SRUC 25 years ago and has been Head of SRUC’s Hill & Mountain Research Centre, at Kirkton & Auchtertyre farms near Crianlarich, for seven years and Head of SRUC’s wider Integrated Land Management Department for two years.  The Centre is seeking to ensure that the farms provide a platform for upland agricultural, environmental and – increasingly – agro-forestry research and demonstration.  Davy studies farming and wildlife interactions and has been working on agricultural and agri-environmental policy at a national and international level for 30 years.  He was one of the founders of the High Nature Value farming concept and much of his research over the years has been into the challenges and opportunities facing High Nature Value farming systems across Europe.  More information at: https://www.sruc.ac.uk/dmccracken

System fwyd wedi ei seilio ar amrywiaeth / Diversity in the food system

Cadeirydd  / Chair: Dr. Prysor Williams, Prifysgol Bangor

Panel:  Teleri Fielden, NFFN; Olwen Ford, Fferm y Llan; Dr Glenda Thomas, FWAG; Dr Non Williams.

Bydd y Panel yn egluro safbwyntiau ymarferol mudiadau lleol cefn gwlad ac yn ymateb i gwestiynau o’r gynulleidfa ac yn trafod sut all system cynhyrchu bwyd sydd yn llawn amrywiaeth gyfrannu at gynhyrchu bwyd iach, tymhorol a chynhaliol o fewn tirluniau Cymreig.

The Panel will discuss the practical visions of a diverse countryside and will respond to questions from the audience discussing how extensive and diverse systems can contribute towards healthy, seasonal and sustainable food produced in Welsh landscapes.

Coed ar ffermydd yn yr ucheldir / Agroforestry trees for upland farms

Cadeirydd / Chair:  Ben Raskin, Soil Association

Panel:  Gareth Davies, Coed Cymru; Tim Pagella, Bangor University; Lindsay Whistance, Organic Research Centre;

Y potensial i Silvopasture wella proffidioldeb ffermydd, lles da byw a’r amgylchedd ehangach.

Mae ffermydd yr ucheldir o dan bwysau sylweddol, gyda’r sefyllfa o ran Brexit a diwygio taliadau cymorth ar y gorwel. Mae dadleuon rewilding proffil uchel wedi pegynu trafodaethau ar blannu coed. Bydd y sesiwn hon yn ceisio cymryd tir canol i archwilio’r cyfle i integreiddio rhai coed sy’n plannu i ffermydd yr ucheldir er budd y mentrau ffermio presennol.

O edrych ar y potensial sydd gan amaeth-goedwigaeth i wella lles anifeiliaid, cynyddu cynhyrchiant da byw ac arallgyfeirio incwm, byddwn hefyd yn trafod dylunio a chydweithredu systemau a’r nwyddau cyhoeddus y gall amaeth-goedwigaeth eu darparu a’r cyfle sy’n rhoi i gefnogi systemau ffermio mwy amrywiol yn y dyfodol.

The potential for Silvopasture to improve farm profitability, livestock wellbeing and the wider environment.

Upland farms are under considerable pressure, with the precipice of Brexit and reform of support payments looming.  High profile rewilding debates have polarised discussions on trees planting.  This session will try to take a middle ground to explore the opportunity to integrate some trees planting into upland farms to benefit the existing farming enterprises.

Looking at the potential that agroforestry has to improve animal welfare, increase livestock productivity and diversify incomes, we will also discuss system design and collaboration and the public goods that agroforestry can deliver and the opportunity that gives to support more diverse farming systems in the future.

Ffermio mewnbwn isel – system symlach, system iach! / Low input farming – aka farming with very little added & only food taken out

Cadeirydd / Chair:  Haydn Evans, organic farmer and chair of the Welsh Organic Forum

Panel: Mat Boley, Pasture For Life; Polly Davies, Slade Farm Organics; Emma Douglas, PONT

Beth all busnesau fferm ei wneud i gyfrannu at adferiad gwyrdd a parhau’n economaidd hyfyw? Sut mae ffermwyr yn cefnogi gwasanaethau ecosystem, cylchu carbon ac yn cynnal menter fwyd gynhyrchiol?

A all cynhyrchu bwyd cynaliadwy fod o fudd i ddŵr? / Can sustainable food production benefit water?

Cadeirydd / Chair:  David Ashford, Welsh Water

Panel:  Meg Eleri, Wales Federation of Young Farmers Club; Lisa Harrowsmith, Yorkshire Water; Geraint Powell, Farmer and Nuffield Farming Scholar.

Bydd rheoli dŵr ochr yn ochr â chynhyrchu bwyd mewn ffordd cynaliadwy yn debygol o fod yn un o’r ‘manteision lluosog’ eraill a fydd yn cael llawer mwy o ffocws wrth i bolisi’r llywodraeth esblygu.  I ba raddau y gall ffermio cynaliadwy hefyd sicrhau manteision i ddŵr, yn enwedig yng nghyd-destun dŵr yfed, a beth y gall fod angen inni ei ystyried?

Management for water, alongside sustainable food production, will likely be one of the other ‘multiple benefits’ that will receive much more of a focus as government policy evolves.  To what extent can sustainable farming also deliver benefits to water, especially in the context of drinking water, and what may we need to consider?

Cynulliad y Bobl

Mae’r argyfyngau hinsawdd ac ecolegol yn dal i fod yn bresennol ac mae angen mynd i’r afael â nhw o hyd. Mae ein system fwyd wrth wraidd yr argyfyngau hyn ac mae addysg a hyfforddiant yn hanfodol i’n gallu i wynebu’r heriau hynny ac i wireddu cyfleoedd i ddysgu. Credwn ei bod yn hanfodol dod â llawer o leisiau at ei gilydd, dysgu oddi wrth ei gilydd a rhannu gwybodaeth a phrofiad ymarferol. Ar nos Fawrth 17 Tachwedd byddwn yn cynnal Cynulliad Pobl i wrando a rhannu ac i drafod addysg a hyfforddiant ar gyfer bwyd a ffermio yng Nghymru.

Sut i ail-greu addysg bwyd a ffermio ar gyfer Cymru wydn fydd y cwestiwn dan sylw.

Rydym yn galw am Addysg am Oes. Dewch i ymuno â ni.

Dyma fwy o wybodaeth ac mae’n rhaid archebu tocynnau (yn rhad ac am ddim) ar wahân i’r Gynhadledd.

People’s Assembly

The climate crisis and ecological emergency are still present and still need addressing.  Our food system is at the heart of these crises and education and training are critical to our ability to face those challenges and to realise opportunities for learning. We believe it is vital to bring many voices together, to learn from each other and to share information and practical experience. On Tuesday evening 17 November we will be holding a People’s Assembly to listen and to share and to discuss education and training for food and farming in Wales.

The question we will be examining is – How to reimagine food and farming education for a resilient Wales?

We are calling for an Education for Life.  Come and join us.

More information is here, and tickets (which are free) must be ordered separately to the Conference.
