The Moredun Foundation has a new Chairman, following their AGM on Thursday 6th September.
Ian, who served as a director of Moredun Research Institute for several years, has a rich history in agriculture. A farmer from Aberfeldy with arable, beef, hill and lowground sheep, he is a past Chairman of Highland Glen lamb marketing Cooperative and the Scottish Association for Sheep Health.
Ian is a qualified Chartered Surveyor and Agricultural Arbitrator, and is a former President of the Scottish Agricultural Arbiters and Valuers Association. In 2010, he was awarded an MBE for his services to agriculture.
Chief Executive and Scientific Director of Moredun, Professor Julie Fitzpatrick, commented: “I am delighted that Ian Duncan Millar is remaining with Moredun albeit in a new role as Chairman of the Moredun Foundation. Ian brings a wealth of knowledge and experience of the farming sector within Scotland. He is a innovative farmer in his own right and has demonstrated practically the benefits of applying the highest levels of animal health and welfare in his own flocks and herds.”
Ian described his appointment as "a great honour", adding: "I look forward to working with all involved at Moredun and to building on the work done by my illustrious predecessors.”
