An Easter Ross farmer is in the running for a top award.
Donald Ross, of Ryhnie Farm near Tain, is one of three finalists in this year’s AgriScot Scottish Arable Farm of the Year award.
The other finalists in the running for the accolade, sponsored by SoilEssentials and AHDB, are David Dandie at Learielaw Farm, West Lothian, and David Fuller-Shapcott at Sweethope Farm, near Kelso.
The judges – last year’s winner Peter Chapman of South Redbog Farm near Strichen, and AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds board member Andrew Moir – praised all three finalists for their focused management skills, attention to detail and their embrace of precision farming.
Mr Chapman said: “All three are incredibly committed to this industry, and doing the best possible job in their circumstances. I learned a lot from all of them.”
The winner will be revealed at the AgriScot event on November 21.
