The Two Farmer Js feel for farmers who've bought stock recently, given the secrecy around farms infected by Mycoplasma bovis.

Jeremy Rookes and Jason Uden say sometimes the greater good is more important than privacy.

The pair also name their individual Ag People of the Year, and surprisingly, one of the Farmer Js agrees with Jamie Mackay!

The show ends on a sombre note as Jason talks about a young farmer who died of suspected suicide this week.
