On this week's podcast, we discuss the beef trade with beef editor Adam Woods and hear from Mohill Mart manager Darragh Barden.

We also hear how pig farmers are set to lose €128m this year and the outcome of protest action by the IFA earlier this week. Mica-affected farm buildings and rural crime also feature.

We also speak to the first winner of the Irish Farmers Journal young stockperson competition and hear that the Agri Aware farm walk and talk series is making a comeback.
