This new "Layman's Guide to Farming" is a fascinating little book which explains all those terms which farmers use.
Teg - a sheep in its second year;
Long leys - generally grassland down for more than 5 years;
Finish - the animal has the right amount of fat to meat to be sold.
But it does much more than this. In a slim volume it covers livestock, poultry, hedgerows, woodland, soil and land management, crops and all the current issues affecting these.
At a price of £6, all profits go to farming charities Farm Crisis Network, Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and the Arthur Rank Centre.
