Vets and animal welfare experts say the farming minister's comments that the badger cull is "delivering results" in reducing bovine TB is just plain wrong.
A peatland restoration project is under way in Shetland and twelve farmers have become involved in the initiative.
We're looking at how farmers prepare for the winter with health checks on cattle and disease prevention.

Presented by Caz Graham and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
