What may the future hold for the Scottish West Coast sheep farmers?

Posted in ,

To discuss this question, SAC Consultant Poppy Frater speaks with Kev Bevan, a former SAC Consulting colleague who specialises in farm business management, policy and market analysis.

Kev highlights the main opportunities and threats to west coast farmers. He touches on the risks posed by Brexit, the increasing importance of environmental influences, potential residual effects of COVID-19 to the market, eating quality and marketing options.

Although the future is uncertain and will pose its challenges, we urge the listener to look ahead to be ready to adapt their businesses.
