SRUC student in running for British Farming Award

Naomi Ramsay has been named a finalist for BFA's Agricultural Student of the Year 2023

A student from SRUC has been named as a finalist at the British Farming Awards for the second year in a row.

Naomi Ramsay is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Rhona Campbell Crawford, who was named Agricultural Student of the Year in 2022.

The 27-year-old from East Lothian is currently studying for a BSc in Agriculture at SRUC’s Edinburgh Campus, having previously completed an HND in the same subject at Oatridge.

“Naomi is goal-driven, disciplined, and resilient, which are all key traits for anyone entering a career in agriculture,” said her lecturer, Craig Davidson.

“I could not be more proud of all she has accomplished and look forward to seeing how she progresses in the finals.”

This rounds out a memorable year for Naomi, who also scooped two prizes at Lantra Scotland’s Awards for Land-based and Aquaculture Skills (ALBAS) in March. She also currently works at SAC Consulting as an intern, following in the footsteps of last year's BFA winner and fellow SRUC student Rhona Campbell-Crawford.

Winners will be announced at the BFA annual ceremony on 19 October.
