For a few weeks now, they have been standing, clearly visible, along the roads of the district. The green crosses are to draw attention to the protest of the farmers. To their anger and incomprehension towards the decisions of the federal government. In a four-part series, we present farmers from the region and their specific concerns. Today: simon weckert from dullstadt.
24 years he is. Quite young to already be taking on so much responsibility. 130 hectares the family farm has just outside dullstadt. Potatoes grow the weckerts here especially. Also a little grain and corn. Simon enjoys his job. Even if the youngest developments worry him. "There's already a gap between farmers and consumers," he says. His uncle peter scolds: "and there is a lack of any professional competence in politics."
