Scottish exhbitors at the inaugural AgriLIVE Smithfield event at Stoneleigh in December will once again have financial support from QMS to help cover their transport costs. A £1000 fund will reward Scottish exhibitors with £20 for every beast entered and £5 for each pen of lambs.

QMS Chairman Donald Biggar said the events offers an excellent opportunity to showcase the quality of livestock in Scotland and also a valuable platform for farmers from around the world to share knowledge and ideas on breeding technologies and production standards. “There’s a long tradition of cattle and sheep from Scotland performing well at Smithfield Club events and I am sure there will be a good turnout this year.”
