Scottish Smithfield exhibitors get QMS support

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.”
