We Eat Balanced 2022 starts today, so thought I would be a good little levy payer and share the social media.
Well, that's not happening.
WTF is it with this industry ? Why are we so utterly incapable of promoting ourselves - all of us - rather than this constant 'some farms are better than others' that we get from both the AHDB and the NFU?
Pathetic.

 
Watched a bit on the news last night a farmer was saying how good elms was and saying how he was farming properly and a clip of him cutting a field of flowers for silage

The point - if there is a point - of We Eat Balanced is that it is going head to head with Veganuary. There has been reams and reams of stuff put on here by folks showing the many environmental and social benefits of livestock agriculture. There is a thread running on the very subject right now.

But no, the AHDB can't stick to the subject, they have to go off on a tangent and find a way to royally p!ss off a good chunk of their levy payers. It really is unbelievable.

Dunno about ahdb but as for the blurb info, it's correct.
 
No till works on a lot more soils than people are aware of. Most no tillers don't care what ploughmen do they just enjoy the challenges of zero till and want to reduce erosion, we keep saying do what you want it's a free country but for many it still doesn't sink in.

But that said I'm not so sure it suits the sentiment of the we eat balanced campaign which I think is in principal a good campaign.

I don't think a great deal of harm is being done by the statement on soil health though.

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
