  • I NOTICED Hugh heading out of the steading the other morning with a bottle of calcium and a syringe, not a usual sight around the longest day.

  • "The Royal Highland Show is over for another year, and what a show it was.

  • IS Scottish farming facing its worst financial crisis in a lifetime?

  • It is maybe an indication that we Border folk don't take our politics very seriously that in my youth our MP sat for 12 years in the House of Commons and only spoke once.

  • I DON'T know if you remember the TV advert from last year with movie actor Kevin Bacon talking about 'BufferFace' - the look people have as they wait for internet pages to load.

  • SIR, - Your headline 'Land reform' - how many people can remember the Shucksmith report?

  • SIR, - It is worth highlighting that the default position of community land ownership, if a community body fails - as far as I'm aware - is that the land title reverts to Scottish ministers.

  • SIR, - If I could comment on the resignation of Mr Jim Paice as Chairman of First Milk, he has had a fair grilling and a lot of criticism from hard pressed members in the last six months or so since we have slid into a situation where we are receiving a milk price which is a joke.

  • SIR, - Myself and fellow members of the Maternal Sheep Group strongly support the views of the anonymous author of the letter 'Wrong focus for Blackie breeding' (May 30), written in reply to Jim Walker's opinion piece the previous week.

  • Sir, - I am writing to express my disgust following the recent Royal Highland Show.
