Labour Animal Welfare Manifesto, River Severn Salmon, Agroforestry
The Labour party has published a new fifty-point manifesto for animal welfare. It includes a review of so-called "mega-farms" and a ban on farrowing crates and all caged hens. Sybil Ruscoe asks Labour's Defra Shadow Secretary of State, Sue Hayman, how it would work.
A traditional fisherman has won his fight for compensation after the Environment Agency drastically cut the number of fish he's allowed to catch. Nigel Mott has been catching salmon using a 'putcher rank' with conical baskets for over 40 years. In 2012, officials cut his catch allowance from 600 a year to just 30. His fight for compensation under human rights legislation has now been upheld by the Supreme Court, but he says it's the end of traditional salmon fishing on the Severn.
Farming Today continues its week-long look at forestry, with a visit to a Cambridgeshire farm which has embraced agroforestry - growing trees alongside traditional arable crops.
