David and Alistair discuss cricket training. New coach Iftikar's certainly given the team a wake-up call. Alistair reveals that Ifty is thinking of dropping Neil Carter.
Alistair notices in passing the new security cameras at Brookfield. He thinks they're a good idea. He observes it will certainly be a long time before he's picking Adam for the team again.
Oliver and David discuss the badger vaccination programme. David would much rather see a cull. He's had a couple of calls from guys worried about their scheme. They're scared it will undermine the DEFRA trial culls in the autumn. Oliver asserts that they can't let that blow them off course. The costs are more than Oliver had budgeted, so he's thinking of using contractors with their own equipment and training up Ed to help. David checks with Ed, who's still keen.
Ed's struggling with the temperamental old baler, and hasn't got much done when Ruth arrives with the somewhat reluctant boys for a family picnic lunch in the field. But David and Ruth's contentment is short-lived when Josh announces he's going off the farm on his bike. They realise they overreacted to this news, and can't decide whether to tell the boys what's really going on.
