Cameron’s NFUS award

A STALWART of the Scottish farming industry, John Cameron CBE, right, has been awarded the NFU Scotland Ambassador award in recognition of his more than four decades at the forefront of agricultural politics.

Presenting the award at the union’s annual meeting, NFU Scotland president Nigel Miller said: “There can be few greater servants to Scotland’s crucial beef and sheep sectors. His tireless support and endless enthusiasm for the Scottish industry is unrivalled.

“As a former union president, a leader of our hill farming and livestock committees and the first ever chairman of Europe’s sheep meat committee, John not only put NFU Scotland on the European map but gave Scottish livestock a voice in Brussels, the legacy of which continues to this day.”
