Farm Labour shortages, free upskilling events, and a conversation with The Soil Association

Welcome back to the Rural Round-up hosted by me, Kerry Hammond. This show is produced in association with the Scottish Government. On today’s episode Tiffany, George & Robert discuss recent weather patterns, silage, a new outbreak of bird flu, and mull over the issues caused by a national labour shortage on farms. Later, we are joined by Ana Allamand, Knowledge Exchange Manager for The Soil Association, to tell us about some of the exciting projects they are working on.
