Have I missed something or have we no idea what the new Scottish Ag Policy will be?

Suckler cow scheme due too be launched in a couple of weeks. It is apparently the blue print that other sectors will broadly follow.
Not sure it will be well received!
The new schemes will phase in over time as BPS is phased out.

What new schemes? Do we get to hear about them before they are phased in?
What are they based on?

I just found most of it in the scotgov website . So from what I gather if you calve down at 2 and have 100 per cent calving plus do a carbon audit and a host of other measures you can claim capital funding for items which you will require to take of farm training for , on top of this you undertake a personal assessment from an advisor to your farm, but the reward for all this apart from the feel good is the beast you produce will have an enhanced value but as a suckler producer dependant on market values on the day I'm not sure when that £ will be in your pocket.

Was that not just England it was dropped for?

This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information.
