Our farmers follow certain practices to help them farm sustainably and produce the highest quality Scotch Lamb.
The Scottish industry works very closely with the Scottish SPCA (Scotland’s animal welfare charity). Scottish inspectors regularly visit our farms and animal health is also a priority in Scottish livestock production.
Production plays an important part in sustaining the diverse landscape for which Scotland is famed. Scotland’s hill livestock farmers typically farm both cattle and sheep, a mixed grazing system which benefits landscape biodiversity (Source: Scottish Natural Heritage).
