New Highland Regional Manager Takes Up Post

NFU Scotland has strengthened its membership team today with the appointment of Bruce McConachie to the post of Highland Regional Manager.

Bruce, who graduated from Napier University with a degree in law last summer, spent his first day at the Union’s Head Office today (Monday 21 February).

Speaking on his first day in the job, Bruce said:

“I’m really excited to start my role at NFU Scotland. I grew up partly on the family farm at Grantown on Spey and in Huntly, where my father is an agricultural consultant, but now I’m really looking forward to forging my own career, and working at NFUS is therefore quite a natural step for me.

“On the farm, I enjoy looking after livestock, particularly finishing cattle and preparing them for showing, whether it be a small local show or taking a team of Charolais to Perth. While I’m working at NFUS I’ll keep this up so that I maintain my connection to day-to-day farming.

“I can’t wait to get stuck into my new role and to start working with NFUS members across Highland Region; talking to farmers; finding out what the issues are and seeing how the industry is reacting to them, and learning about different farm types so that I can get as wide a perspective as possible.

“There are clearly many big policy issues facing the industry at the moment, the main subject on everyone’s lips being climate change. On the membership side, the recruitment drive of the McLaren era was very impressive and I’m looking forward to recruiting new members to the organisation and looking after existing ones.”
