It's early morning at Willow Farm and Neil is impressed that Josh has already fed the hens. Neil lets Josh know the good news. He is prepared to offer Josh a thirty per cent share of the business for £1200. Shocked Josh wasn't expecting his share to cost that much. But when Phoebe offers her help with driving down the cost, Josh declines. Wanting to be taken seriously as a business partner demands he must pay what the business is worth.

Back at Brookfield to watch the sheep shearing and to lend a hand rolling fleeces, Josh discusses Neil's offer with his dad. Josh suggests that after he has checked his facts and figures, he talks everything through with David and Ruth.

At Bridge Farm, Alistair examines the cows for signs of TB and finds some sort of a reaction in one of the cows. Though it is inconclusive, procedure demands that the whole herd be put under movement restrictions. Tom hopes this won't affect the sale, but Alistair warns that it is a possibility. The family just have to cross their fingers and wait for Animal Health's assessment.
