After a week of sustained rainfall all over Ireland, news correspondent Patrick Donohoe quizzes tillage editor Andy Doyle and western livestock specialist Nathan Tuffy on the tough weather conditions – and what farmers can do about them.

Farmers Journal agri-business editor Eoin Lowry looks into the disconnect between energy and fertiliser prices, and expects nitrogen costs to ease later this year.

Before he left the Farmers Journal last week, former news editor Pat O’Keeffe met Harold Kingston, a West Cork dairy farmer and regular contributor to the popular Farmer Writes column on Farmersjournal.ie.

Finally, Irish Country Living's careers and education reporter Mary Phelan profiles David Thornton, an agricultural engineering student enjoying hands-on work experience at Claas's machinery factory in Germany.
