Scottish Agricultural College boosts organic dairying

THE Scottish Agricultural College is leading an attempt to establish an organic dairy industry in Scotland.

The college has embarked on a conversion process to full accreditation under the UK Register of Food Standards. Organic milk commands a premium of about 9ppl on the standard ex-farm price.

Organic farming will be among the issues to be debated at this weeks annual European Dairy Farming Event at the National Agricultural Centre in Warwickshire. Milk Marque chairman Andrew Dare will address the conference.
