Plea for 12% coupled cattle support

John Scott Meat applauds the CAP Reform comments made by SAMW president, Alan McNaughton, during the Association’s annual conference in Glasgow on April 20.

“Alan urged the UK Government to help create a fresh platform for growth by looking again at the case for Scotland to be given a 12% coupled payment option for cattle production, rather than the 7% currently on the table,” said Jamie Scott, who is a member of the SAMW executive council.  “Other EU countries are set to get 12% under the current CAP Reform process and our producers should get the same.  We vitally need this level of support to boost livestock production in Scotland.”
