Lindsey Miller, 24, from Bellingham is joining Farm Stock Scotland as a Trainee Livestock Procurement Officer from the beginning of July. From a farming background in Northumberland, Lindsey lives with her boyfriend Graham, farming in the Tyne Valley with a mixture of suckler beef cattle and Hexham type Blackies.
She has a good knowledge of the industry having also previously worked at a local auction market as well as a dairy/beef AI Technician. In her spare time, Lindsey enjoys a wide variety of sports, training her border collie on her small Cheviot-Mule flock, and is a keen member of Cambo Young Farmers Club.
A delighted Lindsey explained, “I am absolutely over the moon to be joining the procurement team at Farm Stock. I’m sure I can help the co-operative grow its membership and throughput in the Borders and on my home turf in Northumberland!”.
David Marshall, Operations Manager for Farm Stock said, “Lindsey brings bags of enthusiasm to the role and I am certain that she is going to be a huge asset to FarmStock in the coming years.”
