What Our Clients Say

James Playfair-Hannay
(Scottish Borders Farmer)

James is a pedigree Aberdeen Angus and Shorthorn breeder in the Scottish Borders, I have worked with him for some time now and have developed a good working relationship with both him and his family.

"Since using Charlie and MVT-customised minerals to suit the natural forage on my farm, my beef cattle have been healthier and have produced high growth rates - all with lower feed intakes."

Philip Bromwich
(Organic Farmer) (Scottish Borders Farmer)

"As an organic livestock farmer I strive to maintain the highest level of animal health and welfare. I was first introduced to MVT by a fellow producer, who had seen positive results.

Charlie has helped me to devise and implement a long-term plan and, although it is still in its early stages, I believe that my livestock's health is improving due to the tailor made minerals, which balance my forage."

Bertie Reid
(Orkney Cattle Farmer)

I am a dairy farmer on Orkney and have been using Charlie and his team at MVT to do all my mineral and dietary work as well as developing management systems to make the farm more efficient.

The information and understanding of my situation that MVT have is unique and their enthusiasm and attention to detail is what makes it work.

Charlie Maclaren

Charlie Maclaren

Charlie's roots are steeped in agriculture although as a student he spent time on cereal and vegetable farms, his real passion is for stock. Luckily for him he had a great mentor in his father who not only had a tremendous practical feel for livestock farming but also ran a very successful consultancy business of his own.

The pedigree and the passion were already there. MVT (Scotland) Ltd has been the vehicle to realising his natural abilities.

His attention to detail, stubbornness, determination and frankness are what makes him tick. With these attributes he readily can immerse himself in the client's farm and can develop a clear picture of where things should be going.
