NFU Scotland’s president Andrew McCormick will visit Kintyre show on August 4.

At the Royal Highland Show last month, NFU Scotland launched its discussion document Change – A New Agricultural Policy for Scotland Post-Brexit.

To follow up the launch, NFU Scotland’s presidential team have started a programme that will see them visit more than 30 agricultural shows this summer to discuss the document with members, stakeholders, politicians and the media.

In the run up to his Kintyre visit, Mr McCormick will attend the Biggar show tomorrow, the Border Union show in Kelso the following week and Turriff show on July 30.

The Change document is at www.nfus.org.uk/ userfiles/images/Policy/ Brexit/Brexit%20Doc%20-% 20pages.pdf.

A copy of the document has been sent to all members and will be the stimulus for discussion and debate on Brexit.

It will also be a focus for the Tory party conference and the union’s autumn conference in October; a driver for debate at AgriScot in November; and the basis for a round of regional member meetings across Scotland pre-Christmas.
