Cases of sheep rustling has more than doubled in the last couple of years. It's estimated that 70,000 sheep were stolen from farmers' fields across the UK last year, according to the insurers NFU Mutual. It's costing them more than £6 million in claims. Anna Hill discusses calls for tighter controls to prevent the illegal trade in stolen stock, and interviews a police officer working in a rural crime hot-spot in Dorset.

Farming Today meets more ambitious British food exporters - Caz Graham joins fourth generation cheesemaker John Carr as he makes a sales pitch to Singapore (with a taste test, of course).
