JLS star knows Scotch Beef is best

JLS star, JB Gill, swapped his high top trainers for wellies and headed north of the border this week to source cattle for his farm in Kent.

The singer, a member of the band which shot to fame on talent show, the X-Factor, developed an interest in farming last year and tweeted this picture whilst visiting an undisclosed Scottish farm.

JB has previously spoken about his love for the outdoors and his desire to be a “proper farmer” with ambitious plans for livestock in the fields.

Jim McLaren, QMS Chairman said: “The Scotch Beef brand stands for world-leading traceability and quality and it is great to see that young farmers entering the industry recognise that our beef cattle are second to none.

“Our industry has a lot to offer the younger generation and it’s fantastic that JB is promoting farming to his fans, as well as acknowledging the top quality of livestock in Scotland.”

JB was staying tight lipped as to what cattle he purchased during his foray north of the border but the QMS team are sending him a Scotch Beef t-shirt and beanie to wear on the farm!
