THE Luing Cattle Society has announced that Natalie Cormack, who is well known for her high quality stockmanship, joins the Luing family as general manager from a background that includes event organiser for Scotland’s Beef Events and managing the AHDB/DEFRA Beef Feed Efficiency Programme for the past five years.
Alongside that, and a good deal more, she
remains as Secretary/Treasurer for the Ber-wickshire Agricultural Association & County Show.
Ayton based Natalie said: “Over the years I’ve become increasingly interested in functional genetics and efficiency. The Luing breed is a leader in identifying and focusing on such efficiencies of production. With the coming challenges to beef farming and the environment, the Luing breed are in a great position and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work with their members to further develop that.”
Luing Chairman Mark Thomson said: “Natalie joining at this point in the Luing story is good timing given her detailed understanding of what is required to be profitable in beef farming. There is no doubt that the traits of the Luing breed are made for the future of farming in the UK or any upland environment. Natalie’s experience will help our very active society membership continue to breed and promote the best upland cow possible.”
