Stuart will be on the stand between 2.00pm and 4.00pm on both the Thursday and Friday of the show, to answer any questions dairy farmers have.

Speaking ahead of the show Stuart said: “The Scottish Dairy Hub is here to help, and we receive many enquiries daily.  Just recently, we have dealt with the topics of bedding, artificial insemination, training courses for staff, installation of cattle tracks, on farm processing, calf house design amongst many others.
“In addition to the “one to one” helpline service, the Hub is happy to work in a proactive manner to look at projects on a longer-term basis, both for dairy farmers and relevant service providers.
“If you think the hub can help, then come and see us at the show.”
