The situation in Somerset has reached a new low for some farmers as they are forced to remove their livestock from the Levels. With floodwaters continuing to rise, James and Jenny Winslade have evacuated their farm and found temporary accommodation for 550 cattle. Farming Today's Anna Jones was there as they arrived at Sedgemoor Livestock market. With thousands of acres underwater some farmers on the Levels are also appealing for food and bedding for their animals.
And as Farming Today continues to look at the relationship between farming and wildlife, Caz Graham visits a site in Cumbria that will soon be highlighting that relationship to the public. A 36-acre organic farm on the outskirts of Carlisle was gifted to the Cumbria Wildlife Trust five years ago and plans are underway to develop a million pound visitor and education centre there.
