Royal Highland Show June 2016

Thank you to all members who looked onto the stand at the RHS. During a turbulent period for UK politics and the far reaching BREXIT vote, there was plenty for visitors, commentators and our various Stakeholder Groups to be chewing over. 

The Scottish Machinery Rings Association stand was again set up by Frank Maxwell, manager of Lothian Machinery Ring, and hosted by Mary Mclean of Highland Business Services. Thank you to both for their hard work. For Machinery Ring staff it was a chance to catch up and discuss member benefits and services across Scotland as a whole. 

BMR will next attend The Border Union Show on 29th & 30th July; we look forward to seeing you there.

Kelso Ram Sales Friday 9th September 2016-Tup Taxis

BMR will be co-ordinating the Tup Taxis at Kelso Ram Sales again. We are looking for drivers, ATVs/RTVs and trailers. We welcome individual offers and groups including Young Farmers. Young Farmers often put their considerable efforts to their own fund-raising activities. 

Kelso Ram Sales is one of the biggest one day livestock sales in the UK and draws sellers & buyers from all over the UK & parts of the EU. 

Moving sheep quickly and efficiently round the Showground makes a huge difference to the experience of the buyers in particular. It also addresses the considerable safety issues surrounding the movement of vehicles, people and livestock in a confined space. 

We appreciate anyone who can give up their day, with or without machine, to help out at this event. 

Do call Lucy at the office if you can help out this year.
