Hedgecutting ban, Welsh hill farming, Christmas turkeys
A petition has been delivered to the DEFRA by a group of farmers hoping to change the current rules on when hedges can be cut. To comply with European rules designed to protect birds and wildlife, farmers can't cut their hedges between the 1st of March and the 1st of September. Farmers say they want to be able to cut a month earlier, during harvest time.
Welsh upland farms require specialist knowledge to get the most out of the land, and in many cases that expertise has been passed down through families for generations. But there are fears the young will look to other careers in the future.
It's only 151 days to Christmas! Turkey producers have already got this year's birds growing ready for the table.
