In collaboration with: Scottish National Farmers Union, Quality Meat Scotland- Marketing Organization, Peelham Farms, Scottish Enterprise and the James Hutton Institute at the Scottish Rural College

The Institute of Ranch Management sent fellow, Amanda Dyer ’08, to Scotland in September of 2014. She discussed key issues that face the Scottish cattle industry with representatives from: the National Farmers Union, Scottish Enterprise, Quality Meat Scotland (marketing organization), Chris and Denise Walton of Peelham Farms, and the James Hutton Institute at Scottish Rural College. Dyer’s fellowship time in Scotland identified potential research and learning-exchange opportunities for TCU and Scottish organizations.  Amanda Dyer and our other fellows’ experiences were featured in an article in the TCU Magazine by Caroline Collier (view at Living Off the Land – Article).
