ScotBeef – 8th June 2017

Scotland’s Beef Event 2017 is to be held on a farm in the Borders this year.

The biennial event, organised by the Scottish Beef Association, will focus on the efficient production of beef on a mixed farm and will be hosted by the Stewart family at Fans, Earlston, Berwickshire, on Thursday, June 8.

A local organising committee, under the chairmanship of Sion Williams, farm manager at Bowhill Estate, with representatives from the farming, trade and research/advisory sectors, has been established to run the event.

“Fans will be an excellent venue for Scotland’s national beef event,” said Mr Williams. “It is a fantastic set-up to see in operation and a shining example of a commercially run beef cattle enterprise from start to finish. It will provide an opportunity to see how an efficient suckler cow enterprise adds value to an arable/potato enterprise as part of a mixed farming unit.”
