Beef hatchet finally buried

SCOTLAND'S BEEF farmers will have a new, single organisation to represent them in 2013, after years' of argument and counter argument between the Scottish Beef Cattle Association and the National Beef Association were finally put to rest.

Representatives from both sides met this week to give the green light for the formation of the Scottish Beef Association, which will unite both memberships under a common banner.

The meeting was held on Monday in the Quality Inn at the Royal Highland showground at Ingliston, and even the fire alarm which emptied the building at one stage could not dampen the resolve of both sides to finally bury the hatchet. It is after all, the season of goodwill.
