  • SIR – As a hill shepherd in Dumfriesshire I am in the middle of lambing and calving which is a highlight of the year. As well as lambs and calves appearing on the hill, nature has its own contributions to marking spring. 

  • SIR, – Regarding the letter calling for the abolishment of the Crofters Commission, I as an ex crofters commissioner would say what’s wrong is the regulatory body the government set up to control and do nothing else for crofting.

  • SIR, – a few weeks ago in Paris, world leaders struck a deal to try to limit global warming in this century to no more than 2°C from its present level. 

  • SIR, – I was surprised to see a full page article covering alleged cattle passport irregularities taking up the front page of The Scottish Farmer’s April 9 edition.

  • SIR, – I read with interest the article on ‘Beef price crisis’ and the disappearance of the Scottish premium.
