The Glasgow based event on Thursday, October 24, is promising to be bigger and better in its second year following a hugely successful launch in 2023.

The Scottish Farmer editor, John Sleigh, said: "The Scottish Agriculture Awards is a brilliant celebration of everything that is great about our industry. The Scottish Farmer is thrilled to once again collaborate with AgriScot and the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland to host the best awards night of the year. This initiative fills a longstanding need to recognise the outstanding businesses and individuals that are at the heart of Scotland’s largest and most important sector.

"Following a hugely successful inaugural first night, we are planning an event that is bigger and better in year two. It has never been more important to celebrate excellence in farming as we bring new and young people into the industry while recognising the superb efforts of those already established. We are fortunate to be partnering with RHASS and AgriScot, who know exactly how to run a successful event. This year, we will once again deliver a night that mirrors the enthusiasm, professionalism, and hard work prevalent throughout our vibrant industry. A night of fun and celebration is hugely important amid recent political turmoil and global challenges.

"I urge all of us to think of businesses and people who deserve recognition and have the ability to inspire others. Whittling down nominations to a shortlist then winner is no easy task, but rest assured, the selection is made by a panel of expert judges who certainly know a Charolais from a Charollais. This October, our event will serve as the perfect platform to showcase the achievements in farming and highlight the ingenuity and resilience of Scottish agriculture. It’s time for us to proudly champion our industry and be inspired by the very best."

AgriScot chairman, Robert Neill, commented: "Following a very successful collaboration last year to create the industry-wide Scottish Agriculture Awards, we are delighted to see the awards launch for 2024. Building on the strength of working together with three significant and complementary organisations in Scottish agriculture, this year will provide an even greater platform to achieve and give recognition in the industry.

"We will again be leading on the Farm of the Year Awards, with the six categories of Dairy, Beef, Sheep, Arable, Diversified and Sustainable, organising and judging them as part of the wider programme of awards. AgriScot’s approach has always been to acknowledge and celebrate exemplary enterprises that are operating efficiently and effectively, innovating and looking to the future.

RHASS chief executive, Alan Laidlaw, said: "The second edition of the Scottish Agriculture Awards will once again help us as an industry recognise the rich diversity and remarkable achievements within Scottish agriculture. RHASS, The Scottish Farmer, and AgriScot have long championed the need for additional avenues of recognition and the awards are a result of this. Building upon the success of last year’s inaugural Scottish Agriculture Awards, we are eager to once again shine a spotlight on the outstanding individuals and businesses propelling our industry forward.”
