NFU Scotland President Martin Kennedy said: “NFU Scotland’s National Conference, AGM and dinner is a long-established highlight of the Scottish agricultural calendar, and we are delighted to have the First Minister join us to address our delegates on the Friday morning.

“NFU Scotland has had the opportunity to meet the First Minister on several occasions since his appointment and we have been in correspondence with him on key issues including future agricultural policy and funding for our sector.

“The theme of the conference is securing a profitable and sustainable future for Scotland’s farmers and crofters, and the benefits that would deliver for our rural economy, our rural communities, and our ambitions on increasing biodiversity and reducing emissions.

“We look forward to hearing from the First Minister on how his Government will support and deliver that vision in the months and years ahead.”
