Scott works for the Dumfries based veterinary pharmacy, Murray Farmcare, as a territory manager covering Midlothian and the Scottish Borders.
Scott grew up on his parent farm in Midlothian, a mixed arable unit with Texel, Suffolk and commerical ewes flocks but left the family farm in 1997 to begin a career in artificial breeding. This involved a role at Britbreed where he specialised in AI and ET work in cattle and sheep. In 2003 he joined the on farm sales team at R.H. Millers covering Peebles and the Scottish Borders, before taking up his role with Murray Farmcare in 2008.
Scott's interests include a pedigree flock of Suffolk sheep which he shows through the summer months, selling ram lambs at Kelso ram sales. He is also very passionate about rugby, as a player, supporter and more recently a commentator.
