Robin Dandie leads leads a highly skilled team of farming specialists, several of whom have connections to other agricultural associations, such as the North East Farm Management Association and the Royal Northern Agricultural Society.

Robin is a Director of The Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RSABI), a unique Scottish charity dedicated to the relief of hardship and poverty amongst people who have depended for their livelihoods on the land. Visit the RSABI website to find out more.

"Through working with farmers from all sectors of agriculture and from all regions of the country we gain an invaluable insight into the industry. What we see are farmers having a much higher level of cash tied up in working capital than they did previously and increasing costs impacting on margins, so knowing how your business is performing and good business planning is more important than ever."
