1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    .25 pence 13th payment aswell? What u gonna do with all that money? I’m going to do a Tesco shop with it. Haha nah it’s good we’ve got a 13h payment, odds of that happening 4 years ago would have been 1000/1

    your right it's hardly going to break the bank but if my maths is correct it's 3.5%ish so better than currently get in the bank. I thought we didn't get it till april 2020 (so don't book the Porsche just yet), although someone else thought we got it each month all next milk year so not sure
