SHEEP TAGGING PLANS WELCOMED BY LABOUR
Commenting on the sheep tagging announcement by the Scottish Government today, Scottish Labour’s Rural Development spokesperson Karen Gillon said:
“There will no doubt be a sigh of relief from sheep farmers who have been worried about the financial impact of electronic tagging.
“Measures to help farmers in Scotland meet the costs of setting up this new technology have to be welcomed.
“We hope with the financial burden lifted for those taking part in the pilots that it helps the industry to start making a smooth transition to the new scheme.”
Thanks to an amused Holyrood researcher for this one!
