Rural Roundup (13th July)

This fortnight’s roundup features news updates on the Basic Payment Scheme, avian influenza and agri-environment schemes. Janette Sutherland is back with the second instalment of her personal development bookclub. We learn about lead poisoning and its causes, calving heifers and finally, we speak with Tom Rust, a land agent from Bell Ingram and ask him what’s on his desk.
