Farming Scotland Conference next week

SCOTLAND'S AGRICULTURAL industry's 'movers and shakers' will come together next week at the 10th annual Farming Scotland Conference in Carnoustie.

The conference, which will take place on Thursday, February 7, attracts farmers and those interested in land and rural sector from across the country, to network and discuss the challenges currently facing the industry.

The 2013 event will hear from George Lyon MEP, as well as the chair of the Potato Council, Allan Stevenson, the chair of Quality Meat Scotland, Jim McLaren, and BBC Young Farmer of the Year 2012 finalist, Tom Rawson.

All speakers will entertain delegates with their views and opinions around the conference theme of 'Weathering the Storm'. A panel session and lunch will also be included at the event.

The conference is being sponsored by Thorntons Law Firm, EQ Accountants, Bell Ingram and Royal Bank of Scotland.

Liz Barr, head of the Land and Rural team at Thorntons, said: "The quality of guest speakers for the 2013 Farming Scotland Conference is outstanding and I am sure the delegates will be thoroughly entertained.

"Each has first-hand experience of issues facing the farming industry as a whole and they are keen to share their thoughts and opinions with the audience."

Graeme Davidson, partner at EQ Accountants, added: "The conference has entered its 10th year and we are thrilled there is still the appetite for this type of event. We have chosen a theme this year that all those in the agricultural industry can identify with and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone next Thursday in Carnoustie."
