Brian reacts predictably to Tom's news about the new herd, pointing out he'd rather Tom's energies were directed into their joint venture. And he won't be allowing the organic brand to carry the Tom Archer name. Tony says Brian is a dog-in-the-manger. But Tom and Tony agree on the name for the new brand - Bridge Farm.
Tom wants to buy his weaners from Neil, but Neil's sceptical. Tom's word is not enough; Neil prefers a written order. Neil complains to Sid that it sticks in his gullet, but business is so bad he'll have to take the order. Joe rubs it in by pointing out Neil made the wrong choice when he invested in hens as well. Bert tries to cheer Neil up by reminding him of the upcoming Ringing Roadshow.
Bert tries to pay for beer with a second hand IOU, a result of more convoluted swap club dealings. But Sid demands hard cash. Joe admits he's worried about all the IOUs he's issuing. Bert tells him not to worry; he's seen Eddie doing swaps for some of them. Bert's looking forward to the ploughing match. He reckons the cup's got his name on it this year.
