Headline Sponsors


The NFU Scotland Conference and Annual Dinner 2023 – Sponsored by Scotbeef and M&S took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th February 2023.

The presentations given by each of our speakers and the recording of each session are available below.

Day 1

Session 1 - Your Health is Your Wealth

It is vital to the future of farming and crofting that all things involved in the business are happy and healthy. From a veterinary perspective, this session looked at the health of Scotland’s farmed livestock. But what about the health and wellbeing of those living and working on Scotland’s farms and crofts? We heard about the Farmstrong programme for Scotland and its success in New Zealand.

Session 2 - Adding Value to the Farm – Additional Incomes

Scotland’s farmers and crofters have built their reputation around farming excellence. However, many farm businesses have also shown entrepreneurial skill in adapting and innovating to bring new income streams into the business. We heard from three businesses where alternative enterprises are adding value to the farm.

Session 3 - From Farm Gate to Dinner Plate

Farmers and crofters are the cornerstone of a Scottish food and drink sector that requires many other links in the chain to get our produce from farm gate to dinner plate. In this session heard about co-operation, processing, manufacturing, adding value and retailing and what each link is delivering back to those on the ground.

Day 2

Priorities for Scotland’s Future Agricultural Policy Package, Jonnie Hall, Director of Policy, NFU Scotland

NFU Scotland has clear priorities for future agricultural policy in Scotland. From its Steps to Change proposals in 2018 to the current policy debate, the Union has advocated a move away from blunt area payments to a tiered structure of support for every active agricultural business regardless of size, type and location. In a rapidly changing context, it is now critical that future support is targeted at production and productivity, while also ensuring climate and nature ambitions are met. With the development of new support framework, the Union continues to make clear what is necessary if Scottish agriculture is to meet challenges head on and prosper in the long term.
