Union wel­comes new direc­tors

The Oban Times - - FARMING -

THERE is a new look to NFU Scot­land board of direc­tors.

Dum­friesshire farmer Andrew McCor­nick was elected the 62nd pres­i­dent of NFU Scot­land, while Perthshire farmer Martin Kennedy and Gary Mitchell from Wig­town­shire are the union’s new vice-pres­i­dents.

A sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of other changes to re­gional and com­mit­tee roles means that the union’s board has many new faces.

New re­gional chair­men in­clude Ru­pert Shaw (Dum­fries and Gal­loway); Wil­lie Harper (Forth and Clyde); Martin Birse (Highland); Kelvin Pate (Loth­ian and Bor­ders); David Win­ton (North East) and Jim Nicol­son (Orkney and Shet­land).

The new chair­man of the union’s in­flu­en­tial milk com­mit­tee is Cum­ber­nauld pro­ducer James Rankin, Baden­heath, who re­places Graeme Kil­patrick.
