So it's amazing how people talk the talk but really don't walk the walk. I personally have around 3 acres of land that cannot grown crops, 2 acres are too wet for machinery in spring and autumn. and the last acre is an old gravel pit so steep sides and thin soil. These are the places animals should go.There is also a more than slightly inconvenient issue with plant proteins in the north, namely we need a good summer to get beans mature enough to dry. the only one that does grow is peas.. Pease pudding anyone? Hot or cold new or old.. your choice.
@Lyn Always bear in mind that science only knows what science knows AT A POINT IN TIME - science evolves (as it must do) and views change. Science just documents, it doesn't create (in as much as it can't create something that can't be created - if that makes sense).My bug bear is scientists talking as if they are at the pinnacle of knowledge and that their view then is immutable. 'Standing on the shoulders of giants' has two meanings.
