So far 2,000 paper surveys have gone out nationally with British Dairying magazine. However, to be sure of being representative of farmers' opinions as many responses as possible are required. To achieve this, Bruce and NFU Scotland are both asking for the help of all dairy farmers in completing the survey on-line.

Email addresses are not recorded and those completing the survey will not receive 'spam' mail.  It should take no more than five minutes to complete. As a small incentive, for each completed questionnaire received, 50p will be donated to the Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RSABI).
 
Speaking of the survey, Bruce Mackie said:

"I am researching farmers' attitudes to how milk is marketed at present and looking at different approaches to securing a better price in the future. I believe that this research is important, as it is the first national survey that attempts to quantify how farmers feel about the options available to the industry for increasing the milk price.
 
"Indeed it is both an independent study (and therefore has no bias to any organisation) and completely confidential, not only will individuals not be mentioned in any report, but also the questionnaire is designed so that farmers cannot be identified."
 
The final report will be available to farmers' organisations like NFU Scotland to help them formulate policy and negotiate on behalf of dairy farmers throughout Scotland.
 
If you have any queries, Bruce can be contacted on 01779 821002 or middletonfarms-survey@yahoo.co.uk.
