Would Scottish farmers be better off in the UK or out of it? With six months to go before the country decides whether to become independent or remain in the union, we ask two farmers who will be speaking at an NFU Scotland debate this evening. Jim Fairlie farms in the Uplands north of Perth. He represents the pro-independence group Farming for Yes. Jim tells Farming Today that independence wouldn't disadvantage Scotland's ability to sell farm produce to England. Peter Chapman from the pro-union group Rural Better Together runs a mixed farm in Aberdeenshire. He says that remaining in the union would guarantee farm subsidies from Europe.
Following a rise in reports of sheep-worrying, the National Sheep Association has launched a survey to help investigate and address the problem.
And as a new BBC programme about hill farmers is about to hit our TV screens this week, we ask how they are keeping their way of farming alive in a changing landscape.
