Nuffield finance

UP TO £10,000 is on offer for Nuffield Scholarships related to the study of quality meat production and marketing. Two scholarships, valued at £5000 each, will be awarded to selected applicants from any sector of research, farming, processing and retailing.

Two more scholarships will be added next year to make an annual, permanent total of four, according to the organisers, the Nuffield Scholarship Trust, The Royal Smithfield Club and four major regional show societies.

"This initiative promises to provide top quality information to help the British livestock industry back on course," said Geoffrey Burgess, chief executive of the Royal Smithfield Club. &#42
