Scottish Beef Association Event 2015

This event was held at Mains of Mause, Blairgowrie, Perthshire on the 27th May 2015 and advertised as a “Beef from the hills” event.

Janice and Adrian Wheelwright supplied the bull and put together an excellent stand which ensured a good steady flow of interest throughout the day. Many thanks to them for all their efforts both in stand preparation and time on the stand. In addition many thanks to John Whitfield who travelled up from Northumberland and spent the day on the stand.

We had a good number of visitors to the stand but many of them were “the converted” as is common at these broad brush events. However, as is usual with these events, a lot of the interest was targeted at the terminal sire breeds. The resident "hill cows" were Limousin's and I think a lot of the event visitors were there to see them and to view/participate in the dispersal sale that took place at the event.

As with previous similar events I came away feeling that running our own events targeting the real "beef from the hills" is the way forward.
