My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all who are actually trying to farm at present!

I have just been through the ordeal of trying to licence animals to move. Without boring you with all the details, it cost me 2 visits from the vet as they lost my first application and when they found it they wouldn't let me have the licence (although they had it) as it had to be issued by the Bristol office because we are no longer on a D notice.

I now have two licences to move the same lot of animals and no licence to move the 2nd lot!

It's a good job I'm only 'farming for fun'!, I pity the rest of you poor buggers who are trying to move animals on welfare grounds etc. I think I would have to pay a visit to the Defra office and tear somebody's heart from their chest cavity if it was me
