All this week, Farming Today has been looking at how agriculture is faring in the UK's devolved nations and examining the differences in policy between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. In today's programme - what's it like for a farmer whose neighbour, just a few miles over the border, gets a different deal and very different prices for their produce? Anna Jones talks to English and Welsh farmers at Oswestry Livestock Auction, five miles from the border, about whether they feel at an advantage or a disadvantage because of where they farm.

And Shadow Minister for Food and Farming, Huw Irranca-Davies, responds to the Prime Minister's comments about the badger cull on yesterday's programme. He questions the decision to proceed, and doubts that the cull will be effective in tackling bovine TB.

Presenter: Caz Graham
Producer: Toby Field.
