'Hugely important time for farming' says NFUS president

The newly re-elected president of the National Union of Farmers for Scotland has been talking about the challenges the board will face over the coming year:

"This board takes up office at a hugely important time for the industry with the CAP Reform process and independence debate gathering momentum.

"In addition, every sector of our farming industry faces a growing list of challenges.

"This is a team with the skills and knowledge to meet those challenges on behalf of our members.

"However, 2013 will also be a year of celebration as we mark our Centenary. This board, with its wealth of experience and enthusiasm, will create a great platform to drive the Union into its next 100 years."
