proberly earn more!

I'm not incentivised to grow food. Infact, I'm villified for it. Two years of mid tier, then stuff it. Can all be gs4, caked in digestate, stood grass sold for fodder and then grazed. I'll be in the warm, getting £10/hr, discount burgers, and actually speak to people. Farming isn't a charity. I'm not here for the fun. Soon as I can dump RT the better.

So only 4.5 million turnover, so a serious legal challenge if possible would send them bust???

Bust them. Then theyll pay the costs awarded against them on top of compensation. That will swallow them up for good together with their plush expensive premises all at our expense. Don't worry they will get their comeuppance.

thing is they know this is where we are heading so seek the remit for DEFRA to be the ELMS polices to keep the gravy train on its tracks


I am honestly starting to think the same, I've had enough of all these leaching idiots ! put the entire farm into ELMS and be rid of them all ............................ I will have so much spare time I could go get an NFU or RT job telling you all what to do

Your first sentence is the problem with society in general, I was actually asked by my parish rector yesterday what the church/parish could do to help farmers. I know it sounds a daft question but give her due she is really trying to learn about agriculture having been brought up in a city and now having a country parish. And my answer was respect us for feeding the nation. Everyone has forgotten that is the primary concern of agriculture not tearing up hedges and making footpaths muddy.

This is the problem with red tractor they have forgotten and alienated the industry they are supposed to support. At the same time they have created another industry that is just fleecing farmers.ABs attitude just proves this.

As a dairy and arable farmer I fully support the need for assurance but not the farce that we have now.

I failed to get the joining email this morning!! :-(

Did the "panel" consist solely of these 5 people??? Were there actually any dissenting voices there?

No dissenting voices but to be fair that wouldn't have worked well on a zoom meeting anyway.

Anyway we know where they stand. They want continuous evolution of standards but only at a cost to the farmer and for no premium. 24 people employed at RT want to control the whole supply chain.
