The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - FARMING FARMING WEATHER -

The dead­line is fast ap­proach­ing to en­ter the AgriS­cot Scotch Beef Farm of the Year and the AgriS­cot Scot­tish Sheep Farm of the Year awards.

Both awards, spon­sored by Thorn­tons Solic­i­tors and sup­ported by Qual­ity Meat Scot­land, set out to find and re­ward Scot­tish farms which ex­em­plify the best in beef cat­tle and sheep pro­duc­tion.

In­au­gu­ral win­ner of the sheep award, Joyce Camp­bell of Ar­madale Farm in Suther­land, en­cour­aged all farm­ers to take time to fill out the ap­pli­ca­tion and help pro­mote the in­dus­try to the wider pub­lic.

“It’s more than just an award,” said Ms Camp­bell.

“It’s an op­por­tu­nity to pos­i­tively pro­mote our world-class red meat in­dus­try and, im­por­tantly, the farm­ers who take real pride in pro­duc­ing Scotch Beef and Lamb.

“I strongly en­cour­age any farmer who is un­de­cided about whether or not to ap­ply to just do it.”
