Agricutural issues discussed during MSP’s farm visit

THE issues facing farmers were at the top of the agenda when MSP Jamie Hepburn visited Kilsyth recently.

Archie MacGregor, an office bearer of the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) Scotland, invited the politician to his Allanfauld Farm.

The MSP said: “I had a great time visiting Allanfauld Farm.

“It was very useful to meet with Archie MacGregor and his wife Libby, as well as officials from NFU Scotland, and I now have a better appreciation of the tremendous amount of work involved in the day to day running of a farm like this.”
