You don't have that direct data but why do you think you've seen such large growth in just the the community and like you mentioned.

Boeing 737 Max passenger flights resume in U.S. after nearly two-year ban
"Good evening thank you for joining us. Grounded no more the boeing seven. Three seven max. Take fighting the us again tomorrow. This coming after two crashes in the last two years still fresh in the minds of loved ones demanding answers and accountability. Here's abc's bob woodruff brand new model. Who called ongoing seven thirty. Seven max eight. They didn't understand the danger that they were walking into. What started out as routine flights up quickly became pilots worst nightmare. A plane had flown into the at full speed with two airplanes down. Three hundred and forty six people killed by two thousand nineteen boeing becoming the focus of global firestorm. Now nearly two years. After being grounded boeing seven thirty-seven max with significant changes is set to carry passengers once again. The max was born out of boeing's need to keep up with its closest competitor airbus instead of developing an entirely new plane to catch up with airbus. They decide to take a shortcut and revamp a model. That's already on the market saving them a lot of extra time and money. One of the big customers early on was young budget carrier in indonesia calls lion air. It was a huge deal. Lion air had asked boeing about later training for their pilots and boeing dissuaded. Them from this now. According to internal boeing documents one of their employees ridicule the request in a message to colleagues saying now lionair might need a sim to fly the max and maybe because of their own stupidity i'm scrambling trying to figure out how to unscrew this now. Idiots will they were mocking them. Because if lion air required simulator training than other airlines. And say well wait a minute. Wait a minute. If they're requiring it maybe we need it than the whole house. A car with start to fall apart on the early morning of october. Twenty ninth two thousand eighteen at the airport in jakarta the capital of indonesia lion air flight. Six ten was getting ready to take off. Its destination was the city of panko. Penang which is located on the indonesian highland a bunka very shortly after the flight takes off near. The pilots are struggling with the plane. The stick shaker pops off it is loud and it is rattling in the captain's hands just ten minutes later. A tugboat captain was out on the java. Sea just east of jakarta maranatha. Did you go to the president. Data news of the crash broke. I immediately flew in from beijing. Where i was based at the time so the sun has just gone down and you can see all the police officers along this doc this cruise been pulling up and carrying out debris piece by piece. There is no anyone could have survived the box. We found that the rep was pitchy up and down down and up and down up. It's up and down for about twenty four times. It was revealed. That pilots were rifling through the pilot. Trying to apparently figure out. What new turns out that. Boeing had installed a flight control system on the seven thirty seven. Max that had the power to take control of the plane from the pilots without them. Even knowing about the program was called m. cass m. cass maneuvering characteristics augmentation system and that this system under certain circumstances can trigger in such a way that it will cause the airplane to nose down so the reason they put 'em on airplane was because they put these brand new huge engines on an old airframe and that changed the way the airplane flew this affected. The engines came in airplanes starts to want to pitch up all by itself. The idea was to provide something that would offset that pitching moment or causing the nose to come up. The pilots have no idea why this plane is going down against their will so they tried to fight it and the way m cast was designed. It was given the control authority to do it as many times as necessary. In other words it was given the power to try to kill them essentially until it finally succeeded

Many people say that these bats are really ugly but the bird is forget. Biologists forbidden bird. So i think we all agree that they are pretty special. Looking bats university of own researcher. Marco chop his colleague. Gloria guests inger agrees. most bats. Look like you'd little puppies but they have very wrinkly face and it's just a lot of wrinkles everywhere but something else about the males. Maybe an even more unusual facial feature. It's very easy to distinguish between male and female because the males have this funny face mosque using their little bat thumbs. Males can pull up a furry slap a skin to cover their faces like a mask. The bet almost tries to hide its entire face inside of the mosque and people have suspected for a long time that these mosques have something to do with matings but the bats courtship is difficult to study. Because they're so hard to find that is until two thousand eighteen. When chopko i'm guessing Colleague university of costa rica biologist bernal rodriguez herrera received a tip that a group of males had been spotted in a highland forest. His team rush there to record their behaviors using infrared video. Cameras and specialized microphones the objective. Was that we get as much information as possible about these animals and the bat state therefore something like six weeks the animals formed. What's called a lek. Where a group of males hangs out in a small area displaying extravagantly two females an uncommon reproductive strategy and bats. The male start their display by rubbing their fingers together for hours which looks really re it. Eventually they begin to sing even with their faces covered and they do these trails. An echo location calls from net purchase. Detroit sound something like this and then to echo. -cation calls in between central's again. The ultrasound recordings have been slowed down to be in the range of human hearing. Sometimes they put the mess down and up again and then they continue singing.

Followed badghis super loud whistle sequence after sequence of sounds the researchers documented one meeting between a male and a female. They think the raised mask and sounds along with odor. Queues may play an important role. In the wrinkle faced bats courtship. The study is in the journal.

I am if you could just start off by telling us your journey so far at what me scales you've built to. The firemen impact dies. Had to talk to you for a little bit about my background so up the moment. We're currently approaching the end of my second food seasonal farm. In prior to that. I left school. I studied that sport and exercise science degree from admiral and growing up around the farm farming. Just wasn't really on my radar. Just didn't really register with me until i went travelling and start broadening. My thinking horizons came home wanting to do something a couple part time jobs. Start to do to help ryan on the farm. As well and i just remember is really beautiful. September sunny day harvested skull shot in the few on just kind of realize that this job the refill like a job. Because you're outside your hands during their you're in nature getting physical exercise and just really appeal to me the lifestyle. Yeah i can also see that. There's an opportunity to get involved. As i thought things could maybe get tightened up in the farm on. So that was my introduction to the both so since then. I've been really keen on using my scientific. Serve mind in analyzing everything that we do in the farm with the aim to increase efficiency. Streamline things make the working experience easier and making sure that reponsible on them with such little experience on farm. I felt like one of the most useful things i can do. Ensure that we were collecting also data looking at all the processes on figuring out long spending each one figuring out whether you shorten the time subsidy removing ways in order to do that you really have to be quite rigorous as much information as you can on have good filing record so i use. Xl unin towards the end of the year really break up there in makes graphs in. It just helped me figure things where we've been doing over the last couple of years on. Yeah i'm happy to say. We've made a lot of improvements excited for the next year ahead. What she thinks the biggest change that you've seen to start look at things in a more mathematical sort of wait. I'm just thinking that plane. I was visit neon harm and you may have had changed a you're planting so you're you're actually increasing the yields smaller avia not seems like uplifting to one of things we've adopted over the last couple of years is Moving away from tractor base farming on getting more towards human powered on ham to farming on. What went hand in hand with that. Was the shift to what you might call a no dig. Bad system is essentially disturbing the soil as little as possible on the there's to try and maintain the subtle health because he soon learn from other farmers dukes. The most important thing is maintaining soil health. In that way you can really strong healthy plants. So so south. What we've been doing with the best system is you're using seventy five cent mir white beds amana. four o'clock. Send me your wife path and then by using. This system is very ergonomic on the body. bed makes a lot of processes quite easy without size. But the other thing does is using tractor where you're making sort of riches you end up. Cutting out. half of the paths is might be hard to explain but basically the short of it is far more efficient on a small scale in terms of production space. So many ways. This lease system is allowed us to get a lot. More duck duchesne Square meter area on the ends up being a lot. More user friendly for june's using hand tools so that's been really interesting comparing dates Transitioning over we're not fully over on that system but taking information from the track vase will insane cross in bed and it's just so much more profitable in terms of their yield. You cannot attain from that. So that's be reading urging It's not only more efficient in terms of the youth against your lawns. But it's also obviously big for the lakers fourth Women situation there definitely do those win win of actually from speaking to you. Ian i concede that your daily hachinohe Small farms Just explore the elephants things to me about why we would need more small farms. Are one obvious. One is the climate issue that we face on them. One of the benefits of having say many many small farms dotted to ryan community or city is the ability to reduce the mileage so far. You're you're delivering When you're moving to local people horse that's one big benefit and the other benefits. I think are the health benefits that you get permitting. Extremely fresh vegetables. When you're harvesting packing and delivering to restaurants that day or wholesalers that they knew that they are going to be straightway or picking and packing slip into your vegetables customers next day. You just know that you're giving them really fresh products that pace a lot nicer than my opinion. Therefore you probably going to have people eat more this also. The nutritional value is going to be really high. So that's good for the health of the customer and then. I think you know what arming experienced. Don't for me personally. It's like it's a likely to really grow in my understanding about the natural world and giving you that connection to nature on allowing me to physically active. I'm doing something i feel is repulsive I'm sure lessons. This'll be feel really inspired. I was wondering what you thought about hiking me changed the additives. That ryan's vegetable growing a history that ability nice to win too and heck midnight To get into business so yeah do get the sense. Or i got the sense from other vegetable growers that it's not exactly most profitable into new victory right comparing to other benchers got. I truly believe that small farms can people. There's enough examples out there now just to name to go. Never seen farm near new york there on one point three years during three hundred thousand dollars turnover. Very impressive Also the urban farmer he was doing one hundred thousand dollars on half nacre or maybe even under the he's in an urban farming context and the other are far profitable Wage job experience. But i think it's like any business turned profitable or not profitable. I think it comes down to egypt. Remember his business have to work hard on making sure it sufficient. I'm analyzing your bottom line. You know what's coming in what's going yet. i think it could be very profitable. Wow yeah it's really encouraging to see other people doing well on amidst you think that is possible to do yourself this law. Really great information people are keen to learn or getting inspired..

Who owns the land details. That she's been growth things. I do clean like that coming. Affiliate veg all of these different things.

Do we even without impulse in every human grabbing this country. We don't have enough traffic hof of the amount if every five so. This is kind of thing that we're up against peace plays. The project is all around working across the food system to look into these individual items. The retailers the growers cashew mattis that system influences like how went with at the same time to increase the accessibility attached. So the way it works is alongside. We talk about pushing vegetables working with people that you retailers like you signed visiting illegals in your greg rallies and all of this kind of thing to get them to up the ante in terms of how that getting veggie people's that might be have you have ties in shops that might be about making more flooded might be about making shows minimum number of portions of it is go mail contracts and then the other side is getting people to mav edge because it doesn't matter how much fetch you get to. The end of that plan was point. Six couching make not more attractive to make more accessible and easy to them to get two hundred getting some each normalized so we work on both sides all across the system so since twenty twenty we've increased by sixty two million portions of excess.

No matter how high in the company in how the all what they do we will have to meet you know. So what all consumers of vegetables and the way we worked with communities like communities like south may and looking at how we congressional veteran community get more people in touch with that just fame rather than stuff that in a ready made meal for example.

"Goes way way back and was created in distant disparate places egypt rome india italy hungary. You name it. There are ancient roman coins that depict niro playing the bagpipes so while we can debate whether or not nero fiddled while rome burned hinging mostly on what the definition of fiddle is. It seems clear. He played the bagpipes. It's not clear when bagpipes made it to scotland. But we do know that at the time they had only a single drone. The pipe put makes the characteristic constant background note until the fifteen hundreds won a second drone was added and the last drone was added in the seventeen hundreds all of the chiefs of the highland clans employed pipers for both peacetime and war spurring their troops on victory until seventeen forty five bagpipes were linked to jacobite ism the movement that sought to remove james the second from the british throne and restore the catholic. Stuart kings the jacobites saw the bagpipes. As an icon of scottish national belonging and military pride while there are loyalist opponents saw it at best as a risible accessory for unflattering caricatures and at worse as an instrument of war carrying pipes was viewed the same as carrying a weapon. And a your command was tried for treason. The court declared quote no highland regiment data piper and therefore. His bagpipes in the eyes of the law was an instrument of author and sentenced him to death but john gibson author of traditional gaelic bag piping seventeen forty five to nineteen forty-five said it didn't happen that way the bagpipe man. Not the execution. That part happened. In fact the execution of the piper james reid might have to the muddling of the historical waters. Some of the confusion seems to stem from the disarming act of seventeen forty six which would get an amendment quote restraining. The use of highland dress this outlawed tartan plaid but didn't say anything about bagpipes. James reid may well have been piper. But that wasn't why he got the short drop and sudden stop he'd taken part in jacobite rebellion's and conviction had nothing to do with the disarming act so a case could be made that the seventeen forty five ban. Didn't actually happen. That makes that one line from braveheart. Goodbye plan outlawed. Choose twice as wrong. Since that set over four centuries earlier the bagpipes were verifiably band. In the nineteen forties in poland. Germans forbade the polls to play their pipes for a similar reason. Because of its ability to stir up nationalist spirit. Just think about that the next time you say it sounds like a bag of cats and a garbage disposal in fairness though you're not completely alone in your entirely wrong hatred of bagpipes in eighteen ninety seven.

The supplies of the ship included a few musical instruments to maintain morale and whatnot. Apparently all you had to do was play the trumpet and the penguins would come right up to you when one man took out his banjo and played. It's a long way to tipperary a whole raft of penguins which is the collective noun gathered to listen. The reception was somewhat more critical for the bagpiper. The penguins fled in terror and plunged back into the sea tremendous tinkerer. Benjamin franklin had been so captivated by performances on musical glasses. Were you rub your fingers around the rim of glasses with different amounts of water in them to produce different notes. It was big in the eighteenth century and franklin wanted to see if he could make it even better. He saw that before each concert. The performer would tune the instrument by filling each glass with just the right amount of water. That sounds like a half.

I think that we need to have a without being inverness or dingwall but not region a hub for logistics particularly but. I think that you know the the processing side it. We have got so much good. Call it e play mini produce in the region. Where the salon dorsey. But we don't have the processing facilities to get the audit volume. I think their employment opportunities within the added value. I mean why. Send your core product way. get made into a fish cake for example or you know salman phillip or minutes or beef unto be parked. So i think. There's an opportunity definitely an opportunity and not might be through collaboration cooperative or whatever and i think money in the budget therefore for building physical hab an innovation have through the region deal so we have an opportunity but it's thought shared. It's the shared part in the cost of even some of the machinery to do the audit volume it displaces the market for you know perhaps cheesemaker to make their product into a retail. Ready product Piece of equipment could cost me to do it in scale but might be something that could be shared there to that jolan. What would you like to see change going forward. I would like to see. It's easy to say the word. It's maybe not so easy to do. But i definitely want to see a lot more collaboration. I want to see a closer link between disley on the public sector. I think that we can both win through that. We can both achieve our goals. If there's this dot closer link a little bit more listening and understanding from both sides. I think it's the who owns the pool of government. They need to be matched. And you know we have to understand that we are in one.

Ron supply a lot of people from retail stores. Side of things adopted more localized supply on a thing that consumer demand was higher. But going back the way. I think that we have seen a huge shift supermarkets. They've been there for ten years. But i think the convenience and the more localized shops have definitely seen an increase. People have gone away from the bigger weekly show up and the are shopping. More frequently with a smaller bus cket even within supermarkets thought is the pardon that the people are shopping mood often but smaller spend on.

Certain goods costal people think that vegetables cause more from a farm shop. The new weeds roma supermarket. But it's actually always case so from what you're saying. Do you think that people that are looking to buy fish. Local projects are more likely to go to somewhere like a farm schultz in a convenience store. Because that's our culture. Just totally as i said. I had a couple of shops of helm still and castletown.

Then we're out of that hole driving the prices down and then potentially room for bringing back small scale system that actually. We know we've got small-scale head we know the quality of the milk is going to be fantastic united ethical position of that. You know that they're going to be treated. Well you know. Most of these big dairy hoods once the stopping a half of just outside. They're inside their auto milked by robot. And they just took it back outside. Ever you run those big dairies with hardly any people employed as slow. So i think that whole question about employment and having a job that can pay on the farm if we can make small scale business pay than we employ more people. So i think returning to that small-scale micro dairy type approach. I think is really important. But potentially guo think creatively about it because no one can be an autism producer if everyone's awesome producer. It's probably in the office. So i think that's going to be a step of which we have to so thing. Okay is it through cooperatives or how we gonna do this. The small scale producers on just producing high end stuff for high priced amok. How can we actually make this something. That's pa of everybody's life. I love you idea the. Nfl solution be in cooperatives. People actually all starting to work together. I can you think that is going to be at the heart of the solution. Thank you to goes neck on. Some different approaches fourth models definitely have customer heart of the business being connected wave but we see rate it comes film and is meters precious helping these connections and relationships as an imperative piece of vocal sustainable fix so this brings knowledge and awareness loyalty the just place louis.

"View that young people do have on a daily sector. Your hope so. I mean i think our aim is like we'd love if everybody came to the ceiling wants to go off and get involved in food or farming across thing but you know realistically not the case but some of them are but hopefully everybody goes away with an appreciation. An you know a strong feeling about whether it comes from you know and developed some opinions on what they want and how they want. But yes so i think seeing that. There's an alternative. I think he's really important. And the fact that actually other commercial sized dairies are also doing this whole process whether or not separating the cough and they're doing mixed beef and dairy so the setup is commercially viable and dairies are meeting into that and i think people to make choices to know for a lot people going to be. Do i buy that milk. Do i buy that cheese if going experience whether it comes. She didn't know why they might choose to buy that milk about cheese. Wished probably gonna cost pennies more than that's great because of our power unpopular Make choices and if people know that have experience on which to make that choice. Then that's going to encourage the lot scale dairy industry to maybe change time if you could just develop that little bit further. Explain how you're making a decent the waiter model that you've got here the chilling project. Yes so i guess two aspects to having the dairy here one of them is the The past is hip so it's pretty hard to get a grip on one of the ways that we try and help the obvious to understand what sheeting was is to give them a bunch of practically experiences that kind of pasta life so give them building tire for making a basket. Woken up to the opening. Or having the cows so the dairies there as a really practical experience on which people can hang that understanding of what people did in the past the fact that they took a dairy cows up into the hill milking up in the hills that they were making butter. Particularly you know this is the chair. And they used in this barrel. I stored in this. They pay the rent with so the dairies. A really great way of bringing the house to live. So that's one of the things that we have it here for but secondly what we're trying to do is from that past look to the future and trying to think about one ecological over genitive approach to farming like the in this landscape so that the dairy then is something like okay. Well how we going to grow feed in this place and what food systems work in his place and obviously this great story the feeling where you know. The cattle were good for the hills. When the ceiling system was in was on the go to buy he was higher than it is in most places in the islands now and that's because of the way that the cows grazed and because they were able to the hill for short number of months and they put a lot and they post the ground up with that big. Who's on the eight months actively with epic tongues so we can start on that with the daily here in that story the sheeting then we can start on the question about what is appropriate local feed system for here so then we can from that discussion about the possibly can along. The teachers like okay. So if the cow is of this highland sustainable future landscape management. But how we can use the cows all going to go up on the hill. All we can do a mixed area. We just gonna do beef but bearings great because we produce a really great product intend to cheese. Oh but we'll say we produce lots of other products and what we're trying to get the kids to see cynical use of everything how fits together so for example we produce a lot of ways you know she's making but the way feeds the pigs and then we've got vegetables we wanna grow crops grow and where we're going to get them in you from that well. If the cows were all out on the hill all the time we're out in the fields the time and never came in then we wouldn't really have any new so the shetland cadillacs come in for a couple of months in the harshest winter and so then that cows pot of that cycle of actually producing manila that we can then grow other food with so there's that whole closed system whereby the farming support itself and then another angle. I guess is we do quite loss. Ecological says is with the groups that come the school grapes look in comparatively different bits of the landscape and looking at what's growing there. We definitely noticed that grazing system having capital grazing. Here's increased. the by best of this world is looking bats. we go a lot more wildflowers. In that definitely got more birdlife. The beds loves poking around in the to like all yellowhammer. Slight comfort three hundred zero hemisphere. So you know. We're looking not just a juicy cheese but producing the that wider ecosystem value in wellbeing so they started traditional multiple. That you've got going on here is fantastic to see in either. Really lovely won't playing the cough this morning and it was beautiful to see the toes and actum each other and there was a love there. You just go. Additional are happy in this life should be in mobile glimpse into the past the who life used to be. Do you think this concept of make to data within the charleston system is a realistically applicable across the highlands in the twenty century. Yeah i'd like to think that obviously the scale and size that we're doing is education with not doing as a commercial exercise. But i definitely think that it has value and should be something that is across the highlands and we agree example in the alps with small farmers. Still go make use of the uplands. They cooperatively pool the milk. They make the cheese nuts. And that's a system that we can learn from an assistant with the technologies and appropriate style and scale. We can reanimate So i definitely think that that's where we need to go in terms of looking at what kind of livestock. We've got how using them in which kind of context can we move. Potentially hill grazing cattle. The jewel purpose and have an ultimate coughing and then milk the mullahs down in the sheds through the winter and then put them back on the hill because milking on the hills. Probably gonna be that easy to do but if you not having a spring carving feelings but having an awesome coughing them potentially you could be milking cows through the winter when you got down the glen and then you can be put in the cows on the hill and some with the older calves and you get the still the regenerative quality of the grazing the exposure that the hill needs to the cows. So yet i'd really love to see it on a commercial scale and personally. That's what i would like to do. Once i've finished starting that she can protect him having onto someone else than than. That's where i'm gonna get severe too fast forward to twenty thirteen. What would your one wish. Be for a highland system. I would like to see us producing really good quality affordable products that we can produce here meat dairy vegetables. Honey fruit the things that we can do well in the highlands. I'd love to see available everywhere. Just as of one place where i know i can get some shellfish there because you can actually buy it and it's going to spain. Oh i know. I can get some great need. That should be just a universal of highland life the access to local food. That's what i'd see since i vision. I like it. So.

"Into sheila dicked so welcome to some hottest. She'll employees checked so salmon. It be great. If you could just start off by telling us a little bit back into your daddy and high long as been going with that yet. So i started feeling seven years ago and so the project itself is about china understand. How people went the healing and did the milking cheese making up in the hill but also electron understand where that fits into modern day. Dairying guess oh so always. We had this plan to start a dairy. But obviously that's descent done and so five years ago we site and we got shetland castle almost immediately but these are shutting capital the haven't been milked to full most chaplain castle. Now come used as beef cows but they are jim pups cow people still milking them but just not as many said a love these cows to stop us to be milked so we had a whole process of just getting used to the cows and the cows getting east awesome being will handle so we spent a couple of years that she just bringing them in feeding them in the in the milking air that we built take them back out again to get more handling hunting. the other. i'm a test milk king then one year just one of them we just hand built so that's like three years of just training. The cows is to be like okay. I'm happy i feel like i'm a dairy cow. I'm happy to be handled out each day. And the us part my routine which is a big bit of work just even before you really started and then those so those the cows obviously the council of it and then there was the building so the bit that we turned into the daring note. Pricing place was completely full down on the ground. The recess down so that the project we want to get everyone involved in building everything from scratch so we didn't just get someone into knock up the building. So we rebuilt the buildings. We stonemason in a lime render into line wools and we got group of december old suspense to rebuild the roof with timber. We built on site. We did everything properly as a slight as we possibly could but getting as much learning it will as we could and just find the actually just a couple of weeks ago got the biomass boiler system connected. So now we can have properly renewable. Won't spy into the dairy so the buildings getting close to being finished now and then yes so for a couple of years now. We've had the cows coughing. And then we've been looking at separating cavs off for the day of the cow can store up milk and the other and that's kind of how the eastern crossing times so among dairy would just take the cough away from the cow off about six days and then it wouldn't see a game which is really stressful for the cow. Think unfort- cough and Yet you might get a massive yield milk but not having a system which is happy animals in really so. We're not doing that which to do it. In the old crofting way another thumbs announced dunk to get into that as well. So i'm we expect the cough off some of the day and then to the cost we can get it by a rope and then lead into the dairy area. The milking area and the cows will follow. And then we're doing milking just wants day and then we've gone into the looking at prices of pasta and getting looking at cheese making making crowdi making hot cheese so we're still kind of in the learning and investigating phase like i wouldn't say we go to silted but we kind of pretty close to getting all sorts. Don't think you've really foundation there to build on yet definitely. i feel like we've learned no fly. I grew up working on a dairy farm. So i knew this all commercial system and wholesome freezing cows and how that worked and separating the cavs often so i had a fair amount of confidence around that but when you're a kid and he went on a farm you just do you really know doing these things and then when you addle. We started into this whole process. There's a lot of things that i just taken for. Granted i guess i want to rethink brita cow. We wanted you know. We didn't want a massive holstein region here because it wouldn't survive so you know we wanted to cow could be thrifty and function of not high in food will silage so we ended up with this shetland cow which is a really fantastic. You know still has that jewel purpose milking in the quality. It's really common and handleable small. And which is just fantastic. And i guess. Most breeds of cows will probably like that you know the highland was is being milked by everybody. But it's no longer the case so we want to find a breed had that which is shown was great for that so we laid the ground there. Shetlands is great because there's a whole group of people are keeping them getting selected about them. I can see the support and people to learn from in terms of the infrastructure was still finishing that off but we've found some nice small-scale tools from unsurprisingly from europe. So we've got like an italian milking machines just a two cluster. Milk machine We've australian little pasteurize as fourteen inches. A time and that was interesting in itself just trying to find equipment that was the right scale because as say commercial dairying now just so massive to survive that. You can't get equipment. The small one of the things. I'd be like to do is just finish off the building side of things in really get kids more involved and see what they want to make. I suspect they wanna make you sliced green. Who one of the things we need to find a cream separator and start looking to ice cream. Because i think that's going to be a real draw for kids. It's really great as well. Because i think with the migratory we've got a walking talking example and experienced the kids to think about dairying understand some issues around it. Because i think more kids come with knowledge of she's around milk like oh have you go. Of course we have But why we milken. Why should you have no or other types of vegetables folks who i think. Kids are starring. Guess sense that there is an issue around milk dairy and some of them you know the old ones or the ones who might be bit mournful into whatever reason you know daring bad and that's great. That's really great place to stop from but we try to do with. the shooting. project is not just a discussion that hasn't got any experiences from which to develop opinions. So the core of is the kids helping us with the castle bringing them into milk Brushing them will feed in handling them and having that direct experience from which then they can stop making an opinion changing opinion reenforcement opinion. But i think it's really important for the people that come hit actually not just talk about a bunch of ideas but actually have some experiences to the pin them too. So that's a really good starting point for discussions about okay so we share on milk with cards. Get less milk is our right. You know how the cost feel pasteurized milk. And so this question about what's rule. Milk can't access to rule. Should they and so stuff about the gutten health the guts and uneven the this all sorts of Avenues for learning. But even just thinking about what rent is in the fact that it comes from a cost got and that's the cough is doing is busy making cheese in its stomach. That's why we use rennet to make cheese so this same in the avenues for learning and for the kids to really think about children who come here that trying to process and ask questions. And that's what's great about. Having the dairy since up in the council here to interact with is that is only when they see them and get involved that these questions come to the heads and i think that's the value prop hands-on get stuff done practical experiences. They so prompt tahoe bunch of new questions absolutely and they expedience of seeing daily done differently that they've is actually another possibility there. Do you think that impacts the.

"Machine worked really well worth looking at the night. Who maybe are yogurt is in plastic. i think we might go to glass with that would probably be able to return scheme with them and soon weakened of that to say see emission So used june covid nineteen in shock. That we've all had expedience into each one so if you could just elaborate on that display consumer habits voles over the last six months cooped has been very interesting for us for everyone. I suppose the biggest shock to us. I had someone in just the stock to laupheim. Nfl that'd be to the supermarket and it was ill. There's no milk of the local shops. So i picked a post up saying we've got plenty. Nope no problem. I'm just accused of traffic for probably the next week or so because we have plenty of milk and it wasn't an issue so we weren't really prepared for that with our little honesty but it was great because our made no virus struggling to use up our milk so the more we could sell direct door us the main lice to dump down the drain so we were extremely busy stark. When things locked died and we were keen as was keen to you know support our local customers and we had milk eggs already cheese so we started in bread and the honesty shed as well just as you could get your staples without having to see anyone. We a one way system in place pretty quickly so as far as him as a so strange time. But it's definitely has died is people have stopped by work and go back to normal habits. Were still busy than we were pre. Covid it's made me think. More of iowa can develop on farm sales because of the honesty shed as grown from little side. Bet plus my office to suddenly especially during lockdown. It wasn't big enough to stop things so we want to develop that so we're looking at more vending machines and making a huge but just making sure we have enough stock on his open. An era for people to walk in safely by their local staples. Just be a more attractive option against all of a sudden gives us a link to that consumers well which we have enjoyed. Beforehand is a dairy farmer. Over ten years ago there was no link with the consumer a toll and we would produce who depict up every tanker and that was it whereas honesty shared. We were getting a lot of people on the farm. And then tracing macos and the cavs and questions and i think we have to provide that otherwise people forget where it's coming forward. We'll have that link with their local supply. Really if thing isn't it easy funded partnering up with other local suppliers gone. Xp selection up there While we've tried to keep it simple as possible. Most of our stuff is either meet here or is our neighbor who produces park nate or the cheese is from highland find cheese which is effectively. We're not milk's going into geez. We it back in the tanker so yard as you say fortunately theft making sure because the onset is not mind. That kind of precludes us from getting too many products in the honest ship but will shuttle working on. That is not the case. You're into machine is a solution to that as you were mentioning earlier. Yeah so that's the next plan or should be the end of november. We should get another chill vending machine which would allow us to be more products and in a year scenario earlier. I m mixture sales milk because it saved. You haven't to dump too much over the course of a week. That you national Much milk new. not now. There was just a spell of the start when there was low. Code that island find. She's a lot of their business disappear overnight so as much as they could stockpile some into chad are the conditional so the Was too much enough. So that point. We went to williamson's local wholesaler. They were very helpful. We're still supplying them with milk. So that really helped us. We were supplying to few the local hubs like the storehouse accordance where our look nice. They were provided ham person delivering. So that was a real help for us so it was a few days where we have the dumps but that's not climate change by cheese demand during the christmas. This is the busy period for sure so the multiple here is changed. Play off. he think back to vacate to go to. I totally changed Ovation but do you feel much more secure as a business. We could more control over it. I think we definitely do. We definitely have more control over the business Affair into thought of it even ten years ago when the other davies going out thinking well what do we do the landscape here we could grow. Crops are do more of. There's nothing to say. We'll do any better than many probably won't any better than anyone else. And there's plenty people doing that so we kinda thought will stay in theory least disappointed. Difference up here is not a real small farms doing their own products so we have more control of what we're doing. I have carried on food just applying into the mid market spying grams or whoever else because the milk price wasn't there i knew i would have the competence vase we've been the situation where the aberdeen juices are because otherwise the whole itchy. Done to the central belt. That's why the time here. So we've got control over overdoing to some extent supplying a local cheesemaker on producing products network even before when we were producing tied into contracting. You supply all your milk that buyer. So there's no way would be allowed to just do ice cream on the side or seller milk or vending machine or not really. It might be changing in some muslim new looking forward towards it you. The most us was moment of. Brexit is realistic in terms of farm payments. I certainly don't want to be subsidized by no is not realistic and supermarkets. You know it's cheaper than walter. An has become cheap. See you're not getting the real cost of it so effectively. Any subsidies forgetting to balance the foods being cheap. I can see that disappearing. Or i don't know just worries. Me is certainly as really what he entitled to misdemeanor. Just think so. Maybe there's an opportunity in their to start. Today's things a little bit better. Yeah even lockdown mid think we will survive is very small. Farm is if we've got a model of supplying our local cheesemaker and then producing as much as we can from the race to our local market providing a high quality product. And a lot to be saved for that consumer relationship issues touched on old ideas that in consumer news spirits products come home. There's a loyal today. Doesn't they're able to discern. Guess just building on that deported belts. No relationship Security within as doesn't it utah absorb. Yeah loggins told us nothing else you you so i. Quick supply chains where really struggle creek. So there's definitely opportunity there but at least it's not hands if we don't do that was done to us rather than outside factors completely but i suppose if to take Decisions for the last year. So you just keep building on. That folks will thank you nick and good luck with your blackout daily business. I really do you continue to have doing success and managed to get that way for balanced.

"Welcome to the highland. Good foot podcast. I'm ms and this week. We're going to be chatting about the daily sector heathen highlands. The stakes has changed significantly over the last decades on a somewhat difficult to picture. Future may look like to help us. Imagine a future find milk and dairy products. I'm delighted to be joined by nick. Mckenzie from fueled farm a fourth generation dedi farm on the black kyle. And somehow addison from the ceiling and clinched up for both and different ways are working hard to help dedi the a part of our sustainable local food system first chatmoss nick and find out what the challenges and opportunities are on a multi day. Deedee farmer so nick to start off. Could you give me a. We'd back end to the In highlands and ho that's evolved over the last few decades yet so we're probably one of the last meaning the highlands whereas the waugh's comeback twenty five thirty years Hundred twenty producers these stolen cooper too so they supplied milkins none but that just windows ten years ago really dropped off just so the data From the really so we made a decision eight or nine years ago we were kind of in limbo because the other day refunds left the area. It meant we were on the edge of the millfield really to look to invest in the farm work on and everything made us very vulnerable. We were still supplying milk at that. Point into non degree dairies. There was always a chance they could turn around and say well. We'll take your milk. But we're going to take starling. We're going to charge you pencil to haulage. Which would just kill rbis overnight so we took the decision in two thousand thirteen. We started making ice cream just to diversify little bit highland fine cheese which is making geez up in team. I've been in talks with them for probably two or three years to possibly supply them but that point too much milk so we reduced our numbers on supply them directly. I'm so we go out of the was made milk field. Because of that point ian be pricing was coming on the price could go from seventeen. Eighteen pennsylvania took to thirteen pence alita on renewal control over that toll. There was no way to plan effectively. And i just didn't in terms of planning the farmer investing in it just didn't give us any confidence so we stopped supplying highly cheese started producing ice cream diversifying. Give us a little bit more control of price on a bit more contact with it can sue three years ago. We did invest in the farm with be to rule bautzen the and twenty four hours a day. She thinks the helps them the more relaxed than helps tons of labor. Ross we've changed the Historically we love hosted region hearts as high because milk volume was address the business but the cheese More important is the level of fat and protein. Especially so we both near schaffhausen which suzy ice cream cheese and then the last couple of years. We've started pasteurizing milk making yogurt and we put in a vending machine of a year ago. I think that's the well actually an anonymous shop on the farm so oviously decided to take the power back and be a bit more in charge of your security if you're Volt over the last five years. Negates be talking a little bit more Automation that the People might think that for the works. Yes absolutely voted the robots in three years ago on that house change walled. It certainly helped with labor but it's also because still nugget On average times a day and they have access to the robots twenty four hours a day which means they're either really eating lying or being built by robots. Were not pushing them around. The tend to be much more relaxing. The ideas that will last longer sedate affectively choose and To be milked. Yeah you should meet. Ninety four in the past in the field energy is payment relaxed absolutely. No yeah they go into the robots Volition to be honest. They do say that. The casualties about slow quick the farmers will we get young coming in and really only a few days training. Most of the will pick it up against some food when they go in there and then we go cameras in the shade. So we have access to see what's happening all the time on any problems with robots. The robot will me so. Yeah we're starting to happy with. I'm much relax relaxed in it's an it just means they're someone. The six five days a year to holiday straight to skates he started off here. Dice screen your To your honesty states which is obviously become increasingly popular but be defined. It will be more Fainting sheen Couple of years ago. Seven the conversation by the consumer picture north plastic as well so it'd be good to hear a bit mortified vadim. She sort of looking at a vending machine for some time. Biggest issue here was just location. And if we pretend a vending machine. And what i should come to the farm to buy milk so we start to just pasteurizing small amount of milk a bidding them in plastic bottles bidding the fridge alongside the ice cream in on a shed and that seemed to go fairly well but it was always a really. We want to of still plastic together. We can so it was always sort of thought. We'd go to vending machine as soon as a kid so when we did change over and went to vending machine and glass bottles. Didn't make a huge. Deformation was signed a lot to customers. That like the milk before. But we're drinking Using five or six single use bottles of So it was the way we wanted to go on a business. The honesty shed. Yeah that's been a real improvement pre covid. We were trying to get rid of any plastic bottles delivered. A few shops spits. No manny's we were trying to drop that but has been delayed because we only wanted to get melkite there. Just because highland find geez main buyer their production suddenly dropped away forty percent so it was very much a case of sailing where we are using it wherever we could draw dumping it. It's back to normal now. We're looking at other options. Possibly smaller are able to vending machines new putin a couple of shops that we supply which would then. We don't have to use plastic. It'll last year. They could theon Tour farm show by a milk. They're crucifying in the plastic bottles to come here to go to the veins machine. So have those make rule vadim machines can see her. That would not work and there's definitely a massive consumer shift in terms of plastic awareness. Isn't there so. I can see where your own that adds to the product because consumers are choosing wants to buy they're looking for the quality ingredient but it also conscious by either plastic convert vitamin Pinnacles the package. Often you find yourself. Torn between china Choices so just how is workable because we want to do with the glass bottles before but we were never in a position where we could sell glass bottles through the show or anywhere else because we don't have the washing facilities we don't have the infrastructure to deal with people back so that's where the.
What to watch for in the first Biden-Trump debate
"Debating Democratic presidential nominee drove by in their first face to face in the campaign, joining us live on the first Midwest Bank hotline. CBS NEWS White House correspondent Peter Mayor Peter Thank you for joining us from what we understand Joe Biden's been holed up with his briefing books and doing Mark debates in such President Trump Not quite as intense in terms of preparation from what we understand it is that is that true? Has he been boning up? Yeah, That's what we're hearing from the correspondents who are covering both sides. You know, Jean, this is the 2020 World Series of politics, but you know there's a pool every day, but the one that caught my eye is a political morning council pool that says 86% of voters say their minds are made up on who they're going to vote for it and just 14% say their minds could be changed. But you know that could be very crucial number and you have to know that both of these candidates are going to have Wisconsin on their minds. On that debate stage over in Cleveland, Peter what is the best way for the candidates to go about it? The president will tell his achievements. Joe Biden will talk about what he would do going forward. Yeah, You know, I think, Jane, you nailed it. There are risks, though. For both of them. Biden's going to need some thick skin to stay focused in the expected face of harsh attacks by the president on Biden. Sons, hunters foreign dealings with Now you have these New New York Times revelations that cut into into that, you know, saying that Trump was heavily involved. At least his businesses were heavily involved in in links to Russia. Biden allies would tell you that he can't afford to let those kinds of attacks on his son set him off. They hope by will stay focused. Above all. They hope he won't lose his cool. If Trump goes for the kind of personal insults that he likes CBS NEWS, White House correspondent Peter Mayer joining us live on the first Midwest Bank Highland Peter, There has been this Back and forth about President Trump saying that Joe Biden is on performance enhancing drugs. He wants a drug test and that Joe was slow and other things and Joe Biden saying, Come on, let's just go. You know, I'm ready for him going to show you how slow I am point being that President Trump has set the bar very low for Joe Biden to the point where some experts were seeing if Biden It is just merely average. He's going to look great in the eyes of some voters who maybe haven't made up their minds because again, the expectation set by the president is so low. You know, I've been covering these debates Jean going back to the Reagan era. And I can't remember the expectations being set this way by one candidate against another in Trump may have set a trap for himself by constantly raising doubts. About Joe Biden's mental state and jabbing it. Biden with Sleepy Joe tag, So the question over the debate stage tonight will be did Donald Trump lower the expectations on his opponent's performance? In this crucial face off. After all, Biden served eight years of VP. You know, he's had 30 years of Senate debates more than 30 years and and then all the debates he had this year, so You know, Biden has to be on his game. That's for sure. Tonight. Too Blunt these attacks from Donald Trump's Peter Fox News. Chris Wallace is going to be the moderator for tonight's face to face. And he says he is not going to be active is a fact checker during the debates, But how important is it for him to keep both of these men on time and to cut them off if they're not answering the question? Oh, I wouldn't want to trade places with my friend Chris, would you, Jane, You know it. Answer your question. I think it's very important.
