Countrywide Saturday September 10th 2011
On Countrywide this week we go picking apples on a waste not want not basis in Cork with Dominic Donnelly ! The 80th National Ploughing Championships are just ten days away and Ploughing veteran Ray Ryan has plenty of memories in our reflective piece.
Damien talks to Colm O' Leary one of several young Irish who are in New Zealand, not for Rugby, but for farming ! And as the Rugby World Cup gets underway next week he talks to a former Irish Rugby International Donal Spring about two of his passions, Rugby and Pedigree Cattle !
Ella Mc Sweeney joins Damien fresh from a visit to David Burns Sweetcorn farm in Longford !
And, should farmers be allowed to sell raw milk ? it is expected that Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney will officially announce the ban in the next few weeks. We get both sides of that debate from Prof. Alan Riley from The Food Safety Authority of Ireland and Elizabeth Ryan , Campaign for Raw Milk.
