Horse & Country TV to Air Farming Sunday Offering Insight into Today’s Modern British Farms

3 May 2013 – On Sunday 5 May at 5.00pm and 9.00pm Horse & Country TV (Sky Channel 280) will broadcast the magazine show, Farming Sunday, which looks at the technologies and techniques adopted by British farmers that are currently employed on the land to produce our food.

Since the eruption of the horsemeat scandal, the provenance of our food and how it’s produced has never been more topical; however, there is little information about how farmers really operate and what modern farms actually do.

Farming Sunday covers the main agricultural sectors, from wheat production through to dairy and livestock farming. The programme gives a true insight into what is currently happening in farming, which is enabling British farmers to be some of the most productive and welfare-sensitive in the world.

Head of Programming for Horse & Country TV, Jonathan Rippon, said, “This new series of Farming Sunday offers today’s farmer a wealth of knowledge concerning a vast array of topics.”

Rippon continues, “From veterinary advice from industry experts, to independent reviews of machinery, to economics and sustainability, Farming Sunday is a must-watch for those involved in every aspect of British farming.”

Farming Sunday will air on the Channel on Sunday 5 May at 5.00pm and 9.00pm, and a new episode will play out in those slots each week.

Horse & Country TV offers a rich, mixed schedule of programming for fans of equestrian sports and country living.  The channel covers all equestrian disciplines including showjumping, dressage and evening, and other topics such as natural horsemanship, lifestyle, travel, food and documentaries.
