SCOTTISH farmers interested in renewable technology are being urged to attend an on-farm demo day organised by NFU Scotland’s Renewable Development Initiative.

The event, hosted by two Clydesdale farms on Wednesday, February 19, looks at biomass and wind energy, with all farmers invited to come and see renewables in action for themselves.

The technology on show in the morning at Byretown Farm, near Lanark, courtesy of the Trainer family, involves a log boiler, while in the afternoon delegates will visit Marshill Farm at Draffan near Kirkmuirhill to view the wind turbine installation, courtesy of Andrew Stewart.
