After the wettest year on record, which began with a threat of drought, there has been some mild and sunny weather recently which has brought farmers out in force to get the harvest in.

Farmers report a very poor harvest this season and with much of the early hay crop wasted, many farmers have made a late cut in the hope of getting a reasonable crop for animal forage.
