    Extinction Rebellion and Farming

    They strike me as being a group of anarchists, trying to force their opinions on everyone rather than being democratic about it. In fairness to them though, most of our politicians are pretty useless. The real ways to address the problems are never going to be popular with Joe “foreign holidays”...

    The BBC does it again!

    I would have wanted to know exactly what was in it and where the ingredients came from. At the first sound of something environmentally unfriendly I’d have refused to eat it on principle. This may not be how we live our lives day to day, but it would reflect our version of their lifestyle...

    The BBC does it again!

    Hopefully one day one of us will get the opportunity to quiz one of them on their use of medication. If they won’t eat honey for “ethical” reasons, they sure as hell shouldn’t be using medicines which are bound to have been tested on animals!

    The BBC does it again!

    I saw that this morning, and the more I thought about, the more positive I felt. The BBC gets a lot of flack on here, often justified, though I suspect that their “biased” reporting is sometimes due to the likes of the NFU not responding quickly enough on our behalf. More could have been said by...

    Fight fire with fire ?

    I’ve eaten twice as much meat as usual today. At least 1 vegan can’t feel “justified” now! :giggle:

    Fight fire with fire ?

    Has anyone ever challenged a vegan about taking medications that will have been tested on animals?

    They almost certainly will have been tested, ironically on animals! :D

    Only press3 like because I haven’t worked out the alternatives yet. Shows how quickly and easily a good day can turn bad!

    Livestock deaths on UK farms

    I too thought it was a very good and comprehensive post, you can tell it comes from someone who is an experienced and effective ambassador for our industry. I agree, it could be used by the vegan brigade, but it can just as easily be used by us. For example, none of the anti livestock farming...

    Real prime time viewing then!

    Methane : Care for Planet Earth

    Which takes me nicely back to your opening post. Firstly, I don’t make big profits in the way that you stated, and secondly your comment about being responsible for over supply and producing excess methane through bad management don’t apply by your own admission. This demonstrates that sweeping...

    Methane : Care for Planet Earth

    My farm is organic, producing beef and lamb. How do you suggest I keep it as grass but grow less of it?

    Methane : Care for Planet Earth

    So what do you suggest is grown instead of grass, because the soil won’t remain bare?

    Methane : Care for Planet Earth

    So instead of being digested and turned into something useful, the vegetation will rot down. What does rotting vegetation create? Methane! Simple cycle of life.
