She said she was not concerned about tracking down the culprits and the incident has not been reported to the police.

I expect the poor farmer wants an EU subsidy. Still £600K is £600K, and every bit helps. Do you think she deserves £600K?

in general arable farmers are looking at clear profit of about £1000 for every ten acres.

So, for example 500 acres would bring 500/10*£1000=£50,000

Using this analogy it is clear to see that a maybe 5 acres have been
damaged which is about £500 quid.

Either the article has changed or you can't read (I suspect the former).

It says £600, twice.

Someone somewhere has retracted it, I read the metro this morning and it also said £600,000 and my first though was *** me that field must be worth a few million then ...

Perhaps they thought it was a field of cannabis.

Possibly on your planet. You will struggle to get anywhere near that in the UK at the moment (even with the single payment scheme)

Indeed, then we have the prime amongst primes, the Rodders of the CUK plonkers, the ultimate in twunts (Since some of our more esteemed halfwits departed these pages), the one, the only, ladies and gentlemen I give you ...... Cyyyberrrrmaaaan.

Take a bow wee man. The stage is all yours.

despite whatever the unqualified ney sayers think,

the article has indeed been edited and the amount being
discussed:

"The pattern has already cost a great deal of damage - possibly about £600.


is not so far from the initial Benes back of a fag packet estimate of £500

'Using this analogy it is clear to see that a maybe 5 acres have been
damaged which is about £500 quid.
