The article reports on the Why beef and sheep farming matters campaign launched by the National Farmers Union (NFU) to encourage shoppers to favour domestically-produced meats over imports and to increase the prices paid to farmers. According to the NFU, British beef and lamb could become niche products if farmers do not start to receive a fair market price that enables them to make a profit. It states that the campaign also seeks to increase appreciation of the work farmers perform in maintaining the countryside.
