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 Matthew Steel, brings together a diverse range of young farmers, new entrant farmers and crofters who meet regularly to discuss opportunities and challenges for their peers. The group is in the fortunate position where they have a presence on all NFU Scotland Commodity Committees and Regional Boards, which means the Next Gen group’s voice is present in every committee meeting held by NFU Scotland from LFA to Combinable Crops, and from Shetland to the South West. NFUS is always keen to hear from Next Generation farmers and crofters in order to support them grow and prosper to ensure Scottish Agriculture is a prosperous, sustainable and profitable sector for all.
