Farmers earn more from YouTube than their crops

I’m not sure what you mean are they on here ?
I'm sorry, I was in a rush and didn't say enough. On one of your blogs you were encouraging farmers to email local MPs about the unsuitability of the Landscape recovery for the vast majority of normal farmers.
That's a great idea.

@Janet Hughes Defra has started a few threads on defra direction of travel in terms of replacing BPS and is encouraging active discussions.

Wondered if that sort of thing interested you a visible part of the NFU who appear to be quiet on here!

Dairy and beef. Worth finding out about him before dismissing his videos 👍
When you see where he came from, the work he's put in over that time, and it becomes hard to criticise the guy. Tom's worked for everything he has and it's good seeing him enjoying getting new equipment, even if he does spend 15 minutes telling us how great it is. 😂
Rather see him with the benefits of success than some other Youtube "farmers" ;)

I wouldn’t agree he has worked for everything he has, I would think his dads done (and still doing) the lion’s share of the work.

I'd say they make a brilliant team as if I remember correctly he started making videos to promote their milk rounds and farm shop which I would say has helped bring a lot of custom into it that may not have otherwise done and has admitted he still has a lot to learn from his dad

100% agree. Also he shows how much he appreciates what his family has done for him and he is extremely grateful for everything.

Going by the effort you put into your posts about a YouTuber, could I politely recommend you get laid more, it may help? There's more to life then being concerned about others.

As a arable and livestock farmer I find YouTube extremely useful, therefore I am grateful to the YouTube farmers who take time out and share their knowledge. At times from a mental health point of view its nice to sit down and learn that it's not just me who suffers from bad days, when machinery and the weather let me down. I am sure these channels also help many other farmers who often work alone and at times feel that the world has turned against them.

Therefore, sorry but I will stick up for the youtuber farmers when they are receiving personal abuse, or their parents are receiving abuse and are being accused of bringing up their children as spoilt brats, there is absolutely no need for it

Do let us all know when you have a YouTube channel going please, would be great to see your perfect set up xx
Well said 100% agree with you

No more dairy cows. On an estate now with 500 stabilizer cows and all the young stock, 3700 acres, 1800 acre arable with the rest mainly grass and some moor land, and 1100 sheep of which I will not be working with

I can probably guess where that is, sounds like a good challenge, all the best of luck in your new job
