Increase in non-stun slaughter, NVZs in Wales, upland flood management

New government figures show a rise in the number of animals being slaughtered without first being pre-stunned. Vets say the increase is worrying, and unnecessary.
We visit a Jewish shechita abattoir who do not pre-stun their poultry. They argue their methods are more humane than those which use stunning.
The Green Alliance has launched a campaign to show farmers how they can become part of a new market for ecosystem services, and get paid for helping to prevent flooding.
And we meet a dairy farmer in Pembrokeshire who's worried about new Nitrate Vulnerable Zones in Wales.

Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
