Talking about Avara on BBC Farming Today

I was glad to be invited on to BBC Farming Today to discuss Avara’s plan to clean up their contribution to the pollution of the Wye, following my story in the Guardian and three hour chat with Avara’s agricultural director John Reed.

I made the point that this is a problem caused by factory farming – by concentrating so many chickens in one place, we have created a nutrient hotspot out of balance with local ecology.

I enjoyed talking to presenter Anna Hill and you can listen to what I have to say, starting 7 minutes into the programme.
