Andrew keeps top NFU job

A DUMFRIES farmer has been re-elected as president of NFU Scotland.

Andrew McCornick was unchallenged for the top job in the elections last week and will now hold office for another two years. Meanwhile, the vice presidential posts went to Martin Kennedy and Charlie Adam Mr McCornick said: “There are difficult and challenging times ahead but Martin, Charlie and I have been given a clear mandate by members to represent them and we are honoured to carry their message forward.<\!p> “Throughout the protracted and frustrating Brexit process, NFUS has been crystal clear about its priorities and through our ‘Steps to Change’ work we have mapped out our thoughts on a new agricultural policy for Scotland. I believe we have a top table team, who, backed by the members, staff and secretaries have the vision to deliver on that.” Mr McCornick farms a 230+ ha unit at Barnbackle, Lochfoot with 160 suckler cows, 600 breeding ewes and a small herd of pedigree Charolais cattle. He is married with three sons and a daughter.
