Infographic: A glimpse of farming in the UK

Occasionally, it does us townies good to have a little exposure to farming in the UK. Here’s a great infographic with a novel twist. When you go onto the web page it starts a couple of dozen counters going, telling you how much farming activity there has been since you came on to the web page.

So, I’ve been on the page about ten minutes and it tells me that 358,000 eggs have been laid. 27,000 chickens have been consumed. And 68,000 kilograms of manure have been produced – in that ten minutes.

It’s worth a go here.
