    Dairy farmers quitting the industry in high numbers.

    Where will the Milk come from going forwards? In my own very local area 3 dairy farms have gone or are about to sell the herd in the last 12 months, all three have been driven out by the low returns for the amount of work and/or the investment needed to carry on milking not being worthwhile...

I was told today with Russian sanctions timber being shipped from the Baltics has been slowed...

    Value of land

    Was think about this, particularly with relevance to what is happening in Wales where land is being bought up for tree's. Do we need a different model for this now? Fundamentally, is this land valued correctly now? Not in farming terms, but in it's value to the financial houses (the other...

    Availability of Farm Finance

    With the reduction in BPS and increasing interest rate environment is everyone seeing a reduced appetite from banks to lend to the agricultural sector or are they naively thinking that ELMS will be the saving grace?

    Yesterday, the euro gained considerable strength against the US dollar, with a recorded close of €1=$1.1438 (Refinitiv). This was a rise of 1.2% from the previous day.
