The author relates some activities in his farm in Great Britain. He states that the wheat in his farm, usually dry enough to store without any problem, is very damp and the yield is half of the normal year. He cites that with the shortage of fresh grazing, his worming program did decline, which leads to some poor lambs and a few deaths. He narrates that he took a lamb to a veterinarian for an autopsy. He mentions that the weather has had an effect on the prices of lamb.
