Union Opens Members Survey for COVID-19 Issues

NFU Scotland members are now able to directly communicate the issues they are facing as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.

NFUS is aware that Scottish farmers and crofters are experiencing problems with a number of coronavirus-related issues which can affect the day to day running of farm businesses. These issues include access, fly tipping, labour and the supply chain. NFUS is keen to hear from those affected to make sure it continues to provide the most relevant information and support at all times.

NFUS members are being encouraged to fill out the survey at to let the Union know details of the issues they are experiencing. This will allow the Union to help others experiencing similar problems, and inform updates to the dedicated Covid-19 webpages.

It is important for the Union to understand, not just the details of issues and incidents but also the frequency with which they are occurring. The more information the Union has, the more effective it can be in working for and representing the membership during this difficult time.

NFU Scotland’s Covid-19 webpages provide up to date news and farm-related information, a Questions and Answers section covering a range of Covid-19 related topics, and a dedicated employment matching page, which matches Scottish growers to available workers.

With over 68,000 visits already, the Covid-19 webpages have proved to be a huge success and a vital source of information to Scotland’s farmers and crofters at this uncertain time.

NFU Scotland President Andrew McCornick said: “These are extremely challenging times for farmers and crofters who are having to get on with the day to day running of their businesses while the national situation is changing at a daily pace.

“That is why it is so important that NFU Scotland members take advantage of this survey provided and let us know the issues they are facing so that we can assist them and others who might be experiencing the same issues.
