Bright spark prize is geared to benefit whole livestock sector

A £1000 prize is on offer in Scotland to anyone aged under-30 with a livestock-based innovative idea to develop.

Backed by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS), Campbell Dallas Chartered Accountants and the Scottish Association of Young Farmers Clubs (SAYFC), the prize is geared to encourage young people to develop “bright spark” ideas which could be of benefit to the livestock industry.

“This initiative is aimed at showcasing the innovation, passion and commitment to Scottish farming shown by the young people who are part of our industry,” said QMS Chairman, Jim McLaren (pictured).

“We look forward to receiving entries where the applicants have clearly thought ‘outside the box’ to improve efficiency or profitability which could in some way benefit the business they are involved in and potentially the wider industry.”

Applicants are asked to enter by sending up to 200 words about their idea with the option of a supporting picture or a short video. The closing date for applications is March 27, 2015.
