Two out of three ain’t bad

Borders farmers head up NFU Scotland for next year as Stow livestock farmer and president Nigel Miller, Stagehall, serves the second year of his second term.

Lilliesleaf producer Rob Livesey of Firth, Catshawhill, Melrose, elected vice-president in February, has been nominated again with no other candidates, other than fellow vice-president Fife farmer Allan Bowie, forward for the one-year post.

Union chief executive, Scott Walker said: “Having a tried and trusted presidential team going into one of the most challenging years for the Scottish farming industry will be reassuring for members.”
