Members will be saddened to learn of the death at the age of 97 of retired Aberdeen-Angus breeder, Bill Sclater, who during his long association with the breed, acted for a time as a fieldsman for the society and was a mentor to many. Bill died in Turner Hospital, Keith, on May 10.

As a founder member and past honorary president of the North East Aberdeen-Angus Club and a former member of Council, the Aberdeen-Angus breed played a big part in his life and he was a much-loved and respected figure in the breed. Bull moved from his native Orkney to the North-East almost 50 years ago, initially to New Deer before moving to Grange, near Keith. his son, Hamish, with wife Margaret, continue to breed Aberdeen-Angus at Denhead, Dunlugas, near Turriff.

Bill died very peacefully with his beloved family by his side. Funeral arrangements later.

“We send our sincere condolences to Hamish and Margaret at this time and our thoughts are inspired when we think of Bill’s dedication to the Aberdeen-Angus cattle and North East Aberdeen-Angus Club,” said club secretary Bruce MacAngus.
