Stirling, Strathendrick and Strathkelvin (SSS) Young Farmers Club bagged the top spot at this year’s Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) bale art competition.
Stirling, Strathendrick and Strathkelvin (SSS) Young Farmers Club was hailed triumphant at this year’s Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) bale art competition.
The club, from Clyde and Central District, was crowned the champion of 53 clubs from across the country in the challenge to boost awareness of the Scotch Lamb PGI brand.
Television presenter Lorraine Kelly, a supporter of the Scottish farming industry and trustee of the STV Children’s appeal – the competition’s chosen charity – selected the winner out of six finalists last week (October 12).
She said: “Judging the bale art competition is one of the highlights of my year – I am always blown away by the level of talent our Scottish farmers have.”
The challenge coincided with QMS’s 10-week Scotch lamb campaign which, following £200,000 of extra funding from the Scottish government, included advertising on television, radio, print and billboard.
