Over the years, AgriScot has evolved into a vital platform for highlighting innovation, sharing knowledge, and fostering collaboration within the agricultural community.

The Scottish Farmer:

The origins of AgriScot trace back to the early 1990s when a group of forward-thinking individuals in the Scottish agricultural community recognized the need for a dedicated platform to display the latest developments in farming practices and technologies. The inaugural event took place in 1994 under the name DairyScot, primarily focusing on dairy farming. As the years progressed, the event expanded its scope to encompass a broader spectrum of agricultural practices, and became AgriScot in 2001.

As AgriScot gained traction and popularity, organisers recognised the opportunity to provide a comprehensive platform that covered various aspects of agriculture. The event evolved to include not only dairy farming but also arable farming, livestock, and farm business management. This expansion reflected the dynamic and diverse nature of modern agriculture in the UK.

As the event continues to grow and evolve, it stands as a symbol of the industry's commitment to excellence and sustainability.

According to the latest independent survey, the satisfaction levels among visitors are sky-high. An impressive 98.9% of those interviewed stated that AgriScot not only met but often exceeded their expectations. Now, that is the kind of feedback any event organizer dreams of!
