It’s Ploughing time again! It’s weird it being a little earlier this year. I’ve the good wellies washed and I am ready to meet some of you loyal readers. It’s a great opportunity to hear what’s really going on out there and there’s a lot – from progress to going backwards. There’s always some group in strife. This year, it’s the beef farmers. We’ll take the opportunity to listen. We’ll hear too from the farmers looking for votes in the forthcoming IFA elections. I don’t envy them one bit.
