OnFarm - Scottish rural stories

Be a price-maker not a price-taker, with dairy farmer Rory Christie

Listen on

Episode notes

Rory Christie farms in Wigtownshire alongside his brother, and is on the boards of both the Milk Suppliers Association (MSA) and the co-op umbrella organisation SAOS. He strongly advocates investing in becoming as good at negotiation as whoever is on the other side of the table - whether that is a big corporate buyer, your farm landlord, or even your spouse or kids! Anna and Rory sat down for a wide ranging chat, that also takes in farming's response to climate change and fears over farm subsidies in a Brexit future.
