As part of our week looking at young people in the countryside, we hear from one agriculture graduate on how the industry is made up of much more than just farmers.
Dairy prices have been on the rise for the last few months, but this year's difficult weather, the high price of feed and trying to catch up after successive years of below-cost prices, has meant some dairy farms just can't survive.
