  • Re: Blue Tongue Control Zones

    I'm afraid there is more bad news to come for the south east. On 15 November the export rules will change again and they won't do anyone in the former F&M risk zone any favours at all, in fact they'll put us further back in terms of prime sales than we are now. I was shown a map defining...

  • Re: Foot-and-mouth - latest developments including overnight news

    I have two pieces of contradictory news on the south east. One source says to expect some bad news today, another says expect some good news on Monday.
