    and Bill Hendry of the Tom Buidhe Fold have made a considerable investment in pedigree stock and cattle handling facilities over recent years and the Lewis Endowment Fund money will allow us to trial modern technology and provide information from our ongoing carefully controlled studies to evaluate the benefits of providing these improvements for high quality Scotch beef production and pedigree cattle breeding on Lewis We hope that our work will benefit and encourage other island cattle producers and to have our website www bruehighlanders co uk up and running by the end of May 2006 The Lewis Harris Cattle Producer Group will get support towards a benchmarking project The aim of this project is to quantify costs and performance of cattle herds and compare these against Scotland standards and against results in other peripheral areas where similar initiatives exist Information will be collected in relation to the physical performance of cattle their financial performance and animal health and welfare Yvonne Richardson of Back who is the co ordinator of the Group said that this project is a great opportunity to examine the costs of cattle production in the area compare these with production costs in other areas and identify ways of improving efficiency Lewis Harris Horticultural Producers have received funding towards the purchase of an enclosed trailer for the storage transport of existing market equipment used weekly at Stornoway Produce Market This voluntary group of producers was formed in 1999 with the aim of developing horticulture as a viable form of diversification for crofters and other small land holders Membership now stands at 82 individuals The group has developed and maintained a presence at the Stornoway Produce Market Donald Murdie of Valasay chairperson for the Horticultural Producers said that the funds will allow us to purchase an enclosed trailer
