Farmers and Problems

Greetings Readers

On a personal note again – the reasons for our travel was a family wedding in the splendid countryside of Dorset UK.

Interesting discussions with local farmers confirmed my suspicions that inspite of the strong feelings of competition and inequality of government protection and subsidy we feel as farmers between countries the problems faced by all farmers seems universal. Why are we all working harder as farmers producing more for less and less.

BSE and swine fever and a type of pig Johnes disease were the main worries of the farmers I spoke with in this area. Big problems requiring major efforts to solve. A warning to those of us free from such risks that we must be ever vigilant.

That concludes the travelogue – back to NZ issues next time

Good Farming
