The UK's No. 1 Farm Business Event

The AgriScot Dairy Hub Blog

The Scottish Dairy Hub and Kite Consulting are running their popular question-and-answer seminar at AgriScot, Ingliston, Edinburgh on 22nd November 2023.

David Keiley, Senior Consultant at Kite will be co-chairing this year’s debate with Tracey Roan, Manager of the Scottish Dairy Hub.

We caught up with Tracey, to find out more.

“Both organisations have joined forces again to put on a single event which will ensure key speakers will give an insight into the short and long-term outlook, opportunities, and challenges for Scottish dairy farmers. As in previous years, there will be an opportunity for dairy farmers and stakeholders to bring along their probing questions for the panel and listen to the latest market intel, something we feel is an integral part of the session.

Our 2023 panel includes George Burgess Director of Agriculture & Rural Economy at Scottish Government, Sally Williams, Dairy Farmer and Vice Chair of the NFUS Milk Committee.  Drew Sloan, Senior VP Sales and Business Development at Semex, journalist and market analyst Chris Walkland and Neil Wilson, Director at SAB Advisory Ltd.

Together they have a wealth of experience on dairy issues at domestic, national, and international levels. Their knowledge and experience surrounding issues on Scottish Agriculture, Climate Change, Market Forces, and Dairy Supply Chains will ensure an insightful debate and make this a must attend event

At the Scottish Dairy Hub, our key role is to answer the questions of dairy farmers and we want to give them an opportunity to ask questions directly to industry figures they may hear about but may not have a direct line for. Collaborating again with Kite will ensure a highly informative event for all that attend.

To ensure you have your questions put to the panel please email your thoughts to in advance of the event. Mark your email Agriscot 2023.

There are some prominent issues on the horizon for dairy farmers in Scotland, weakening milk price, milk contract legalisation and delivering on environmental targets – this is a fantastic opportunity to understand and discuss these with our expert panel. We look forward to seeing you there.”

The event will run upstairs in seminar Room 1 (above main entrance), Highland Hall, Ingliston, at AgriScot from 1.00pm – 2.00pm and is free to attend. It will also be live streamed for anyone unable to attend on the day.

After the event, the audience are encouraged to have further discussions with both David and Tracey on the Kite exhibition stand in the main hall.
