Refreshed Dairy Focus for AHDB

30 April 2019

AHDB

SCOTLAND, UK - AHDB is now recruiting an additional person to work with Scottish dairy farmers, after the Scottish Dairy Hub officially moved to NFUS in February.

The Dairy Hub, managed by Stuart Martin, is a free-to-use, confidential, reliable, reactive service that helps dairy farmers to resolve any queries they might have about their farm, their business and the wider market for milk and dairy.

Established in 2014, the Hub was initially joint-funded by AHDB and the Scottish Government, however as NFUS takes over AHDB’s role, we will now reallocate funding to create a new dairy-focused role in Scotland.

This second Knowledge Exchange Manager position means the industry will have the support of two dairy experts who will work with farmers across Scotland on business and technical improvements.

Paul Flanagan, AHDB Director for Scotland said: "The changes that we are announcing not only demonstrate a more joined-up way of working, but most importantly it strengthens the routes we have to engage Scottish dairy farmers.

"Doubling the number of Dairy Knowledge Exchange managers that AHDB has on the ground in Scotland will mean that we can better support dairy producers through this defining time for the food and farming industry.

"Stuart Martin has worked tirelessly on behalf of AHDB and the Scottish dairy sector these past five years and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all the fantastic work he has done, and the genuine difference he has made to farmers’ lives. I’m confident that the Hub will continue to thrive with AHDB continuing to work closely with Stuart."
