For the last 18 years, the firm have chaired and sponsored the Farming Scotland Conference, held annually in Carnoustie, with the aim of bringing together like minded, progressive businesses and individuals from throughout Scottish agriculture.
Graeme Davidson, Head of EQ Agriculture, said: “For EQ, agriculture is a prominent sector for us, and we thoroughly enjoy chairing the Farming Scotland Conference annually as it allows us to promote discussion and debate on issues affecting the farming industry whilst bringing the agriculture community together. Agriculture shows up and down the country provide further opportunities for communities to come together and celebrate what is great about farming and rural life, and we always enjoy meeting up with our clients from across Scotland at these events.
“Sadly, that is not possible in a physical sense again this summer, so we are delighted to be main sponsors of The Scottish Agricultural Show – Online for the second year running. It was great to see the community coming together in an innovative way last year and we look forward to celebrating Scottish agriculture virtually again this year.”
