Thank you for letting me know.  I would also like to let you know that your magazine is very popular with our students.  Many of the students at this school are from a rural farming background and it has been fantastic to have some reading material that appeals to them, particularly the more reluctant readers.

Farm safety; 'Made it Myself' beef housing; farm borrowing interest rates

By popular request the cover design has returned to a single pic of man and machine, and this farm safety one couldn't be more appropriate. A double camera system means you can see traffic approaching from both left and right. The idea comes from Niall Murphy who farms in Co Armagh, N Ireland. If you're into beef, pages 39, 40, 41, 42 show what you can do with crash barriers. Pg 26 has an article ‘Reasons why the beef situation in Ireland is critical’. The financial piece on 21 makes sobering reading about interest rates, which have never been so low for so long.

Information and bright ideas are going to be crucial in future years as the transition period leaving the EU progresses.
