The article focuses on the reaction by farmers and sheep producers in Great Britain to the proposed financial aid package for the country's livestock industry. The government's announcement of a £12.5 million financial aid package for the English livestock sector, although welcomed, has attracted criticism for failing to repair the financial damage caused by the foot-and-mouth outbreak. The National Farmers Union warned that the package falls far short of the losses of more than £100 million sustained by the industry.
