Starts in 10 minutes after this weirdo finishes doing posh kebabs, this should be interesting!

Well, thought provoking stuff, most of which I'm sure we'll have seen before but great to see on BBC1 at primetime. I think that the idea that we're driving the supermarkets to do this is something of a cop out, not only because of the pace at which they're expanding but simply through their power in influencing both directly and indirectly our shopping habits.

the big dairy in america looked ok clean , lots of room but i guess we only saw the good bits
cows looked funny on the merry go round
how many times would you shout "scream if you wanna go faster " before it was no longer funny :lol:

but me with my feed delivering hat on would have to say its better than
laying pipes down in crap or over dead sheep and
crawling into a vermin infested loft guessing 2 ton of feed down each side but more down the left cos all the heavy milkers prefer the left

Yes, it was good of them to provide a funfair ride to entertain the cows while they're inside all that time! :wink:

Do you think the reporter was disappointed that the 'failed UK farmer' they took out there was impressed with the set up, instead of being disgusted with it?

i'm only half way through watching it myself - http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... heap_Food/
