As part of our work on Women in Agriculture, we went to meet Primrose Beaton of Lawrie and Symington at Lanark Auction Mart. Primrose is head of cattle sales and Lawrie and Symington, and gave us a colourful and entertaining insight into her work and life in farming. Mary-Jane Lawrie of SAC Consulting chatted to Primrose about her early career, educating the public about where their meat comes from and choosing local produce, with some interesting anecdotes thrown in along the way.
