Farmers divided over independence debate

As the count-down continues to the Scottish independence referendum, arguments from both sides of the debate have emerged from the farming community. Four former Presidents of the National Farmers' Union in Scotland have now backed the campaign for independence - among them, a farmer from Dumfries and Galloway.
