EXTREME WEATHER might stop you getting The Scottish Farmer today – but while you are waiting for the postman to dig himself out, or for the local shop to take delivery, you can keep up with all this week's news, views and business figures via our website, mobile news app and e-editions.

The chaos on the roads has made it very difficult for our distributors to deliver this week’s issue to various parts of the country, so we can only apologise if you have tried and failed to get your hands on a print edition of The Scottish Farmer today.

There is a bit of a delay, and there is a severely limited supply at the moment and your chances of getting a copy before tomorrow are slim. If you can't get a paper, there are a number of alternatives. You can keep up to date on all the latest news with free access for the week from our award-winning website www.thescottishfarmer.co.uk where we have turned off the paywall to let you read as much as you need to.

Or if you prefer why not download our mobile news app – available for download from Apple's App Store and Google Play – just search under The Scottish Farmer.

Or if you want a digital version of the actual newspaper then try our e-edition which can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play and Kindle Fire.

We hope you are all keeping safe and warm as the country gets through this terrible weather. If you are one of the brave souls who have to be out there working and tending the welfare of your farms, then we salute you. Just be careful!
