NFU Scotland Roadshow Coming to North East Region to Debate Future Agricultural Policy

Farmers and crofters invited to attend event on Monday 23 May at 7pm in Glen Garioch Room, Thainstone Agricultural Centre

NFU Scotland are on the road with a series of 12 events to discuss future agricultural policy in Scotland.

The events – taking place in Shetland, Orkney, Skye, Inverurie, Stepps, Carfraemill, Castle Douglas, Dingwall, Perth, Kilmarnock, Campbeltown and Oban – invite farmers and crofters to discuss Scotland’s transition from a post-Brexit, post-Common Agricultural Policy support framework to a new agricultural policy in Scotland, expected to be in place by 2025.

All NFU Scotland roadshow events will be attended by President Martin Kennedy and Director of Policy Jonnie Hall.

Ahead of the roadshow in Thainstone next week, Lorna Paterson, North East Regional Manager said: “We are encouraging our members to attend and participate in this event to enable them to express their views and help shape policy decisions. Our region covers a vast range of enterprises: beef, sheep, pigs, poultry, dairy, vegetables, potatoes, soft fruit, and flowers, and future funding and support mechanisms will need to be tailored to help support these different enterprises equitably. This will not be easy, so please come along and ensure your voices are heard”.
