yes, i watched it. i was surprised by the young farmer's logic that he could suddenly start selling his lamb to china if we left the eu.
i was also unimpressed with the words of the corn feeding american farmer when pointing out that his boisterous cattle calmed down and became contented when bought into the crowded feeding up pen (he said that they had room to lie down - on the rubber, drainable flooring, in their own faeces). the camera switch to a depressed looking cow was unnecessary - i think everyone could tell that's what had happened.
the migrant picker issue was one that i had mentioned early on in the campaign to people who complained about them. that is a dilemma that is going to take a lot of working out. there are few young people from this country who consider it a good enough job for them and areas like cornwall, with a relatively older population and high horticultural production are going to flag up the problem big time.

Vegetable producers like my brother and his neighbouring farmers are really concerned about the likely impact - they're investigating all sorts of possible ways around the problem ... local casual labour isn't one of them ... not reliable enough ... never has been ... if they could get enough local people to do the work they'd not have been employing foreign labour that they have to provide accommodation for ... :rolleyes:

Maybe some of the people (I won't use the words I was going to) who voted for Brexit would like to volunteer their services!

Just watched on catch-up.

Depressing. Have people no idea of US farming methods? Chickens and eggs washed in bleach (rampant salmonella), hormone injections for beef and chickens (faster growth) routine antibiotics to counter the overcrowding and in pigs is a growth enhancer. Call-me-Dave was keen to allow US imports of beef a while ago but Europe said "NO" thank goodness. GM crops not tested enough, cattle fed on corn, (I think maize is meant by this), when was that a natural diet for cattle. Also the system is based on litigation there so if I sell my magic hair pills which will make your hair grow thicker and faster, provide a few questionable 'research' papers to the FDA it will be rubber stamped, if your hair falls out as a consequence then you will have to sue me, obviously I will be busy counting my money in some tax and extradition haven by then.

As said, why that young farmer thinks he will be able to sell lamb to China, he has to be living in lala-land.

High fructose corn syrup anyone? Let me freshen your glasses.

I thought it a very weak programme.
