Christine Cuthbertson, Ayrshire Regional Manager for NFU Scotland, said:
“NFU Scotland is a member-led organisation and we lobby on behalf of our farming members and also help our farming community on an individual basis with any problems and support they may be seeking.
“The professional members are a huge support to NFU Scotland because there are many cross-sector issues that we can work on. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship where we can tap into the expertise of Galbraith and they can also stay up to date with the issues that are affecting the agricultural community on the ground”.
Alice Wilson, a rural surveyor with Galbraith in Ayrshire, said: “We are delighted to join the NFU Scotland family, which campaigns tirelessly on behalf of the agricultural sector.
“Farmers are the backbone of rural Scotland and a vital part of the economy. We seek to provide professional advice based on the real issues facing famers today, not least the challenges of meeting sustainability targets and adapting to future policy goals amidst a background of economic uncertainty, staff shortages and rising input costs. Farmers are incredibly resilient and have proven to be very adaptable to fast-changing situations.”
Alice Wilson also sits on the NFU Scotland Ayrshire Regional Board.
