Christine Cuthbertson

Christine CuthbertsonWell what a year 2016 was! Quite calm on the weather front but major changes in politics! Whilst the implications of the Brexit vote and trade negotiations will be a focus for NFU Scotland, the day to day work of resolving issue and addressing members concerns in Ayrshire will continue. We will continue to push for a fairer return from the market for our members and make sure regulation is proportionate.


Again in 2017, we will build our partnership working locally with key organisations, including Police Scotland, Scottish Government, local authorities, amongst others, to ensure Ayrshire’s farming voice is heard.

We met several times with our political representatives last year and welcomed them on farm to hear and see how important farming is to the local economy and this will continue during 2017.

Of course, the work of the Union relies on our members who hold positions.

As a farmer’s daughter, I know there are never enough hours in the day, so I am grateful to those members who come along to meetings after a hard day’s work. We need more of our members to take an active role in NFU Scotland, and if you would like to find out more about how you can get involved, then do get in touch.

I am also happy to help with any farming conundrum you may have. I am a very approachable person with 20 years of experience of helping farmers, so please don’t be stuck – pick up the phone or email me, no matter how small or large your problem may be.
