Next Generation

NFU Scotland strives to represent the interests of all farmers and crofters across Scotland no matter their sector or background. The Union’s Next Generation Committee, led by farmer Colin Ferguson, meets regularly to discuss how the Union can assist and represent those younger farmers, and those entering the industry and the policies and issues that affect them.

NFU Scotland is committed to seeing farming and crofting in Scotland grow and prosper and we believe the best way to guarantee success in the future is to invest our time in the next generation. In a time of uncertainty, it has never been more important to encourage talent and innovation within industry and we are fortunate in Scotland to have a wealth of enthusiastic individuals from a variety of backgrounds all keen to enter and succeed in farming.

The Next Generation Committee is the means through which we encourage this and we need the next generation of voices to engage with us to help shape the future of Scottish agriculture. The Committee is comprised of a diverse range of young farmers, new entrant farmers and crofters who meet regularly to discuss opportunities and challenges for their peers and seeking to enter or continue farming in order to influence positive change and speak with one voice.  The Committee is led by Chair, Colin Ferguson and Vice Chair, Zander Hughes who are a great team to be representing the interests of their peers.

The Next Generation group are in the fortunate position where they have a presence on all NFU Scotland commodity committee and working group meetings, which means the Next Gen group’s voice will have the opportunity to be present in every committee meeting held by NFU Scotland from Pigs to Poultry and from LFA to Combinable Crops.

We are always keen to hear from Next Generation farmers and crofters in order to support them grow and prosper so do get in touch with NFU Scotland’s Next Gen Policy Manager Jenny Brunton if you want to find out more.
