NFU Scotland’s north-east regional manager, Lorna Paterson, said: “On behalf of NFUS and our members, we express our huge sympathy and commiserations towards the Rennie family and Caroline’s wide circle of friends. Caroline was so well respected by those who knew her.

 

“Her passion for our industry was second to none; she had such a bright future ahead and was a real entrepreneurial and dynamic female within the farming locality.

 

“This horrendously tragic situation is just the cruellest of the cruellest and everyone in the farming arena is shocked.

 

"It is no secret that our agricultural industry is deemed to be a very dangerous sector, and our farmers and farm-workers face enormous challenges when working with machinery and livestock.
