Scottish levy board welcomes new knowledge transfer specialist

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has welcomed 24-year-old Rebecca Rainnie as a new Knowledge Transfer Specialist. She will work in the organisation’s industry development team. 

In her new position, Rainnie will work on QMS projects to deliver a range of activities that are designed to assist livestock farmers in Scotland in developing their efficiency, profitability and sustainability.

Coming from a background in the industry, Rainnie was brought up on a farm in Aberdeenshire and has a BSc honours degree in rural business management from Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) Aberdeen. Prior to joining QMS, she has held roles in the livestock sector in Scotland, most recently working as marketing co-ordinator with Harbro Ltd in Turriff.

QMS’ head of industry development, Doug Bell, said the body is looking forward to working with Rainnie. “We are delighted to welcome Rebecca to the QMS industry development team,” he said.

“As well as her knowledge of practical farming, Rebecca is also a great communicator and, I am sure, will make a strong contribution to the workload delivered by the team.”
