Daniel Stout

Technical Adviser Scotland

Daniel joins us from up north on Fair Isle, Shetland. He has a strong academic background having studied a BSc Hons in Agriculture from SRUC Edinburgh before going on to do an MSc in Livestock Science, focusing on sheep breeding and genetics and carcass quality, at Aberystwyth University.

Although now based in Stirling, Daniel is still very much involved in his family farm where they run 400 commercial ewes alongside a small flock of Texel sheep. Looking to make improvements in lambing ease and lamb survival the farm used its first Innovis genetics in 2018 putting a Highlander tup over Shetland ewes. The intention now is to transition their main flock to a first cross Highlander ewe put to a terminal.
