No help for crofters

AS a crofter, we have received no information at all. We have searched the Internet and gathered info that way but why has nothing been sent out?

For example, we had info about bone meal and BSE, but not foot-and-mouth.

Why are local farmers near us doing nothing to protect themselves – two farmers have straw mats, the rest havent.

Employees of a local piggery under inspection are moving about freely from work to their own farm without disinfectant
