The article presents information from the author's diary on his activities relating to farming. Early July is normally the most relaxing part of summer on the farm. On Monday it turned out that the author's friend had just received an" Information Statement" from the Rural Payments Agency informing him of the size of his historic single farm payment entitlement. On Tuesday the SFP was discussed among farmers. On Friday the author met his friend again and it turns out that the reason he got his SFP Information Statement so early was that he was one of a number of farmers chosen to be part of a pilot exercise run by the RPA.
