Next Episode of This Farming Life is
A series following the struggles and triumphs of six very different farming families in some of Scotland's most beautiful and remote landscapes.
As the new year begins, we meet three new farming families – father-and-son team Raymond and Johnny Irvine, Shetland sisters Kirsty and Aimee Budge and the Rodgers family in Co Down, Northern Ireland - and buffalo farmer Stevie Mitchell returns.
New entrant crofting couple Lynn and Sandra send their first pigs to slaughter. Raymond's best bull Major is injured in a brawl. The Rodgers hopes of Balmoral show hang on a clear TB test and buffalo farmer Stevie goes shopping in Holland.
Inspectors arrive to check Raymond and Johnny's subsidy claim. Kirsty and Aimee gather the flock in from St Ninian's Isle. Lynn and Sandra host their first workshop at the croft. The Beast from the East wreaks havoc on Stevie's buffalo farm.
A new family, dairy farmers the McLeans, are introduced. Raymond goes the extra mile to save his lambs. Stevie faces buffalo cow number 666, and Kirsty and Aimee take last year's calves to market.
The Rodgers face a final TB test. Animals arrive at Lynn and Sandra's croft. Raymond is kept guessing by his surrogate sheep and a calving boom starts at Kirsty and Aimee's farm.
In Shetland, Kirsty tackles her first breach birth. Stevie's favourite pygmy goat Ginger struggles to give birth to twins. Raymond's cows run amok on their way to the fields and the Rodgers take young heifer Nadia to the Balmoral Show.
