Over the past five years there has been a 50% increase in the sales of woodburners, according to the solid fuels industry regulator. It says around 200,000 burners have been installed this year alone. Farming Today asks what an increased demand for firewood means for both wood producers and the biodiversity of woodland areas.

A new voluntary code of conduct is being introduced to tackle TB in llamas and alpacas, which can not only catch the disease but also spread it. Under current laws they can be transported from one location to another without those movements being recorded. The new code would introduce both pre- and post-movement testing. Charlotte Smith asks whether that's enough.

Presented by Charlotte Smith and produced by Emma Campbell.
