National Farmers' Union of Scotland

The National Farmers' Union of Scotland is an organisation that promotes and protects the interests of the country's farming industry. It was formed in 1913, and has approximately 10,000 members who are farmers, crofters and others involved in Scottish agriculture.

The union stood a candidate in the 1918 Ross by-election, T. Preece; he took 35.4% of the votes cast, but was not elected.[1]

The current president is Andrew McCornick.[2]
