Brief Updates to the Harvest report below from Joanne Jones (FCN) and Andy Jerrard (Methgodist Rural Support Worker)

  • Some concern that milk price may have peaked but hopefully will remain stable
  • Also some concern on greater numbers becoming vegan & affect this will have on prices & peoples health
  • Also the uncertainty over Brexit coninues to make business planning difficult
  • Bovine Tuberculosis is ever present but periodically seems to cause even more frustration (usually coinciding with yet more changes in the rules or what appears to be inconsistent application of the rules). This seems to be the case currently, paradoxically at a time when there is some action on the control of wildlife although that in itself causes some pastoral concerns.
