Doesnt the farmer matter?

A SMALL local market, that we seldom use, has sent us two letters about foot-and-mouth (and is to be congratulated), and the NFU has sent us an update information letter.

But a larger market we regularly use has had infected sheep on its premises, and the Ministry has not sent us anything about the outbreak.

Are they too busy – or dont they think the customer/farmer matters?
