Jim Hume, Scottish Liberal Democrat Borders MSP, has congratulated Borders livestock farmer Rob Livesey on becoming elected as NFUS vice-President at this year’s AGM.
The MSP also congratulated Nigel Miller going into his second term as President, and said that this represented a strong voice for farming in the Borders.
“With Nigel Miller continuing as President and Rob Livesey elected as Vice President, the NFUS’s new board of directors represents a strong voice for farming in the Borders and is good news for the area.
“Rob Livesey will be an ideal representative for one of the most important industries in the Borders.
“Rob’s experience as past Livestock Chairman of NFUS as well as being a respected successful farmer, means he will undoubtedly be a strong champion for Borders farmers.”
