Brexit and Biosecurity, Pigs for Conservation Grazing, Ram Sales

A House of Lords committee report warns that the UK's biosecurity could be seriously threatened by Brexit, leaving animals and plants at heightened risk of disease.

Could Brexit pose a threat to the UK's biosecurity? A House of Lords committee report out today warns that it could leave animals and plants at a heightened risk of disease. Caz Graham talks to one member of the committee, Lord Krebs, who explains why.

All this week Farming Today is finding out how farmers prepare for winter. For the sheep sector, that means getting ewes pregrant, ready to produce next year's batch of lambs. We visit a ram sale at Hereford Market.

And Caz meets the pigs which are proving to be the best way to get rid of unwanted plants such as Himalayan balsam.
