Jason Ward, the General Manager at John Scott Meat, said: “We attend LiveScot every year to buy livestock, but this year we were delighted to put on the Beef Rib and Lamb Saddle competition. It was a fantastic opportunity for knowledge exchange along the supply chain, with many farmers eager to ensure they deliver what we and our customers need. The quality of the competition was extremely impressive, a perfect showcase for the quality beef and lamb Scottish farmers are producing.

In a competition featuring robust classes of Native & Continental Ribs, the title of Champion went to an Angus from Matthew Currie of Skewbridge, Mouswald, Dumfries. The Reserve championship was also an Angus from Tom King.

The LiveScot event, supported by industry leaders, serves as a valuable forum for stakeholders to come together, exchange knowledge, and celebrate the finest produce in the sector.
