Farmers and crofters are invited to the next meeting of the Sutherland Monitor Farm, which will focus on developing a sustainable business.

Innovations specialist Stephen Burns from the Agricultural Engineering Precision Innovation (Agri-Epi) Centre will be the main speaker at this meeting which will be held at Brora Golf Club on Tuesday 5 December.

The Agri-epi centre has been established to drive growth and support innovative ideas to help farmers and business owners become more profitable and sustainable.

It has over 80 members and brings together leading academic institutions with industry partners to design and develop research and innovations that will support growth in the food and farming sectors.

Also at the meeting, Mr Ballantyne and his wife Victoria will also give a summary of how their first year as the Sutherland Monitor farm host has been; what changes they have made, and the results of those changes. The group will then take a look into the Clynelish costings, scenarios and ideas for 2018.

The meeting at Brora Golf Club, which is free to attend and open to all, will begin at 11am, with coffee/registration from 10.30am.
