Farmers star in #26days26ways social media campaign
On the run up to COP26, we wanted to highlight the range of things farmers across Scotland are already doing to combat climate change and help Scotland towards its net zero ambitions by 2045.
So 26 days from the start of COP26, we featured a short, daily video from a farmer in Scotland, speaking about one of the ways they are responding to the climate challenge and have adopted climate friendly practices.
We got a great response, and would like to say a big thank you to the following farmers who took part: Stephen MacKenzie at Auchmore, Ross Paton at Torr, Hugh Black at Backboath, John Brown at Gaindykehead, Scott Shearlaw at High Garphar, Ross Mitchell at Castleton, Sam Parsons at Balkaskie Estate, Jimmy Ireland at Feoch, Stewart Wilson at Coldcothill, John Kerr at Woodhead, David Barron at Nether Aden (pictured, top), , Rebecca McBain at Stoneyhill, Hugh Greirson at Newmiln, Neil Butler at Stewart Tower Dairy (pictured, middle), Iain Graham at Killochires Fold, Bill Gray at Preston Hall Farms, George Baikie at SRUC Farms (pictured, bottom) and Willlie Harper at Gryffe Wraes.
