ABSTRACT
The article presents an update on the livestock sector in Great Britain as of January 5, 2006. The extension for the Farm Nutrient Management Scheme has been passed. Phil Barber will be resigning as group secretary of the National Farmers Union in Barnard Castle, Teesdale, England. According to farm owner Bill Rutter, the increasing price of farmland does nothing to ease the difficulty of passing on family farm to a farming member of the next generation.
