New for this year will be Women in Agriculture discussion groups. The Scottish Government’s study on “Women in Farming and the Agriculture Sector” highlighted a number of issues for women in agriculture. Recommendations in the report stated that practical hands on training programmes need to be targeted at women, and there are a number of topics that women have identified as their priorities for learning.
A series of three workshops in six regions aims to provide structured knowledge transfer and opportunities for women to improve confidence, gain and develop skills and build a business network to further their rural businesses.
