Local MSP Welcomes End Of Sheep-Tagging Threat

Commenting on the news that continuation of a derogation from the draconion EU measures for sheep tagging has been gained, MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

"Many farmers have previously expressed serious concern about proposals for sheep-tagging. For hill farmers in particular the EU plans would have required unworkable levels of supervision of flocks which are often spread over wide areas of rough grazing

"This derogation is just what we needed to help a sector of our farming community that has been finding it difficult to make a profit in recent years.

"Without it many farmers would undoubtedly given up sheep and our tabletops would have been much the poorer for that."
