The BBC’s Farming Today team visited SRUC’s Oatridge Campus recently to record an edition of the daily programme which focuses on key agricultural issues.

It was part of a week of programmes where Farming Today toured the UK asking people in rural communities what they think politicians' priorities should be in the run-up to the forthcoming general election.

Anna Hill flew up from the programme’s Bristol base to Edinburgh to visit Oatridge to present the programme. The main interview was with Steven Thomson, Agricultural Economist who looked ahead to a post-Brexit agricultural future.

The broadcast also featured an interview with student Caitlin Ross, studying HND in Agriculture at Oatridge about the key election issues.

Hannah Earle-Payne, Agricultural Team Leader at Oatridge said: “It was great to have the BBC Farming Today team here. The programme offered a fantastic nationwide platform both for the Oatridge Campus, and SRUC as a whole.”
