QMS appoints new strategy development officers

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has appointed two Scottish sheep strategy development officers.

Katie Keiley and Stuart Annand have been placed as part-time development officers within QMS in order to develop the Scottish sheep strategy.

The pair will work together and will take over from Rod Mckenzie, who is currently in charge of the strategy.

Kathy Peebles, QMS livestock development manager said: “Through EID (electronic identification), sheep farmers who are interested in monitoring how individual animals within their flock are performing can do so in a relatively easy way, rather than viewing the whole flock on a batch basis.

“The Focus Farm projects have shown benefits to all sectors of the Scottish sheep industry through the use of good performance recorded genetics. Now is the time to make the linkages to ensure a joined-up approach.”
