    The hoof GP

    new start up. As for the reminders. Does it go against your business if you don't attend? Why don't they just do videos so we can watch when we want and have a live messaging board for queries and pictures of what we've got and is it compliant.

    Parlour/Tank room wall coatings?

    Apologies. Won't start on new one anybody tried stokboard? Would it stick the pressure washer and the chemicals? Just thought with thicker panels. You could do away with all the joiners of the PVC panels.

    Restricions on calves?

    When does a dairy bull calf get classified as a beef animal according to red tractor? Would that require the dairy farm to have a beef audit as. well? Alot of farms won't have the space, time, NVZ implications and no contract to turn a profit from it possibly.

    Restricions on calves?

    I'm very worried somebody could lose their contract through no fault of their own. Even the steering groups had problems with calves being shot. God knows whats going to happen when many more calves have the same rule on them.

    The Red Tractor ACCS referendum

    I think we need to start one of them petition things. To get it discussed in parliament or go to a review. There must be a way to get the NFU to alter their ways to. So members can give a vote of no confidence in the leadership or not fit for purpose. Maybe it's about time somebody who actually...

    New Cheese Factory in North Wales?

    Taking the tanks up settle I think. Really sad state of affairs Wales has lost about 500 million litres of processing capacity with Llandyrnog and Tomlinsons.
