    There was one little ray of hope on Farming Today this week on Saturday.
    Mr Roberts, Vice President of NFU was quite good, he has a herd of Herefords, and pointed out the carbon capture of grass.The BBC, Charlotte was still reluctant to accept it at the end, but he did put a point of view, difficult in this era of vegans and climate change fanatics.
    Shall be watching tonight.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe what "they" complain about with grass is plowing under the hay field to re-plant lets the carbon stored in the "soil" to escape into the atmosphere. how often do you plow-under your hay fields? 5 years? 10 years?

    may sound a little bit silly, but aren't potato fields, bean fields, pea fields, corn fields, wheat fields, . . . plowed under after every crop?

    I did watch that programme about meat last night,did not have a heart attack, but nearly.
    of course it was extreme, she is a vegan after all, but to a certain extent it does illustrate just how overpopulated the earth is.
    It also illustrates that if there was to be any blame laid anywhere, it is not the farmers to blame, but the the people who buy the stuff in the supermarkets.
    I did find it amusing that her solution to the problem was that we should all keep fifty hens. They ate the old hen together with copious quantities of fattening pasta!
    The trouble with that programme also was that she did not mention grass fed meat, only in passing in the U.K.
    She flew around the world in aircraft large and small, and mostly used American gas guzzlers. People will assume that Brit farmers are equally to blame.
    We need a PR organisation to put out the truth!

    We have a customer, pig farmer, who has had to spend huge amounts of money on security fencing to prevent vegans trespassing. They are still a nuisance, but he cannot get police protection because the chief of police, and the local council boss are both Muslim!

    If this is really the reason then a letter to the police complaints authority is needed as it is racial discrimination.
