THE UPCOMING rare breed conference due to be held at Stirling Agricultural Centre on March, 31, has been postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The 'Back to the Future' event to be held on behalf of the Rare Breed Survival Trust had intended to bring together interested parties to discuss the importance of native breeds on Scotland's landscape and environment.

Chair of RBST Caledonian Support Group, Marin Beard commented: "We are reluctant to set a new date until we know more. However rest assured, we intend to keep working on behalf of Native Breeds and we look forward to seeing you all at the rescheduled event in the future."
