Small Farms Research, Game Fair, Sewage Meadows, Pig Production
Why bigger isn't always better: we hear about a new report in praise of small scale farming.
The UK's largest annual gathering for anyone interested in field sports, the Game Fair, includes everything from debates on what a post Brexit UK Wildlife and Countryside Act should look like, to shooting, fishing and even a hunting horn blowing competition.
Former sewage lagoons in Northern Ireland have been transformed into a wildflower meadow in a unique project in County Armagh.
Around 60% of the pork produced in this country is from pigs kept indoors. Many live on deep straw but around a third are on bare concrete or plastic slats. Both meet UK welfare standards and both command the same price from retailers and processors - but should they? We speak to one farmer running parallel systems to compare costs.
