'Townie' question about the farmers

YOU just can't beat famers for organisation.

There they were last Tuesday morning waiting at nearly every crossroads in the county for the buses to take them to the big protest march in Dublin. A very confused urban dweller wondered how they could afford to take another day off from their work, just two weeks after nearly every farmer in the country left the land behind to enjoy the delights of the ploughing championships.

I'm afraid I can't answer that, but I suppose the harvest is over.
