New figures show farming is now the most dangerous job in Britain. Forty five people have died in agriculture in the last year - a significant rise - making it four times more dangerous than construction. The Health and Safety Executive tell Charlotte Smith the farming industry needs to stop accepting death and injury as part of the job.
Also exhibitors have been bending the rules to get more livestock into the oversubscribed Royal Welsh Show and as some commercial farmers have said hobby and garden farmers could cause welfare and disease problems we hear a report from a livestock rearing training course.
Produced by Anne-Marie Bullock.
