Farm Fears After Wet Weather
4:11pm 29th November 2012
There are fears for the future of some Cornish farms as the wet weather hits yields.
Pirate FM has learnt cereals have been worst affected, with some harvests down by a half.
Now the worry is it will have a knock on effect on feed and dairy farmers.
Ed Richardson from Cornwall Farms says the floods have been a terrible end to a terrible year:
"I do feel we're on the edge of a precipice where there will be quite a few farmers who will struggle to get through this winter.
"They felt they were going to nearly get there, then feed costs go up, silage quality isn't as good as it should be and 'oh dear, we're not going to get there again'
"Generally it's quite depressing. You go out and your splodging around in it. I've just been talking to a farmer on The Lizard and this weekend he had five inches of rain. So all round, they're just fed up with it"4:11pm 29th November 2012
