We are delighted to announce the appointment of Rebecca Rainnie, formerly of Harbro and Quality Meat Scotland. Farmer’s daughter and SRUC graduate, Rebecca will be JCM’s new Account Executive and staff writer.

Rebecca, who started her career in the marketing department of livestock nutrition specialist, Harbro, and was part of the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists’ John Deere Training Award in 2016, says:

“Over the last few years I have developed a real passion for agri-communications, and I am very excited to be working with the Jane Craigie Marketing team. Jane has always worked with some great names in agriculture, and I look forward to helping communicate their stories in particularly interesting times for the industry.”

As a farmer’s daughter from an upland mixed livestock unit in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, Rebecca has a real passion for livestock, and takes any spare opportunity to work at home on the farm. A committed member of the Scottish Association of Young Farmers since the age of 14 and now volunteering for the Royal Northern Countryside Initiative, a charity at the forefront of increasing countryside awareness through education, she is also always keen to help educate the younger generation about agriculture.

Managing Director, Jane Craigie added: “Rebecca brings with her both her practical farming experience and her passion for educating the wider public about farming, both of which, combined with her communication skills, will be a great asset to the team.”
