Highlands

Ian Wilson

2019 is set to be a challenging year for Scottish farmers and crofters in this region, with primarily uncertainty caused by Brexit and the impact it will have on this industry.

As a Union we will continue to be at the forefront of changing legislation and regulations; influencing policy-makers; working to reduce red tape for the industry and representing our members and the issues that they face daily.

The Highland Regional Board, under the chairmanship of Martin Birse is looking to move forward with a planned programme of on-farm events throughout the branches. Martin sees the decline in the numbers entering the industry particularly the young as a real challenge and we as a region are going to work on letting youngsters know of the opportunities that lie within agriculture.

Throughout the coming year members should utilise myself, and the network of local group secretaries, as the first points of contact within the Union for help or advice on any relevant issue. First and foremost, we are here to help.

As well as having a strong team within the region ready to support you – whether its issues with planning, legislation, inspections, or simply you don’t know where to turn to – we are here for you.
