Concerned Oliver gives Ed a pep talk following the theft of Ed's cattle. Sadly, Ed didn't have the spare cash to insure the cows. Oliver offers an interest-free loan to tide Ed over but it's politely refused. Oliver reminds Ed he's a first class farmer and mustn't give up. Adam also has confidence in grateful Ed - tenancies are like gold dust, just look at the Fairbrothers. Phoebe's taking her PPE test for Oxford seriously, and Jennifer's helping whilst also swotting for the Halloween pub quiz. Adam asks Brian about The Fairbrothers and their share farming proposition. Brian suggests reading their business plan very carefully. Adam also asks Brian to chair the public meeting about the Berrow Farm crisis on Wednesday. Adam suggests Alistair speaks as well. Ruth and David talk about milk yields - the way they're doing things is like the old way, nice and simple. They need to discuss figures with Pip, who's busy helping the Fairbrothers. Ruth notes that Pip seems to be writing their business plan for them. Ruth doesn't want Adam taking the boys on under false pretences because of Pip. David encourages Ruth to have a night off and ring Usha to arrange a night out - if Ruth doesn't phone her, he will.
