The anti-dairy protestors are out in force today but all seems peaceful until the market closes. Eddie goes to sort out a traffic bottleneck. But as David wonders if the police should be called, Eddie cries out and disappears from sight.

Kirsty is first to get to Eddie and tells Brian that he's bumped his head. David calls an ambulance. Eddie doesn't know if he slipped or was pushed. Kirsty didn't really see what happened but when Brian tries to blame the protestors, David advises him to bite his tongue.

With the x-rays revealing no fracture, Eddie makes it to The Bull in the evening. He won't let a graze ruin his birthday. Clarrie makes a fuss but doesn't want him drinking alcohol. Brian comes over, and agrees with Clarrie. He wants to be sure that Eddie wasn't pushed by a demonstrator. Eddie's certain he just lost his footing. Nevertheless, Brian apologises and offers Eddie reimbursement for his out-of-pocket expenses. Eddie gratefully accepts Brian's money.

It's Ben's birthday too. Josh proposes a toast, not just to Ben but to the cows now they know they're staying. Pip insists the sheep are staying too. So the family make a toast to Ben and to Brookfield.
