Mebyon Kernow's Dick Cole felt pretty sure he'd trumped his rivals' farming credentials by identifying himself as the proud owner of a "certificate in animal castration".
Conservative candidate Caroline Righton - who claimed she wanted to put the "F" back into farming - revealed she'd launched her campaign "in a milking parlour, in her milking suit and got covered in all kinds of things".
She'd also apparently been "taken to market", where she "didn't fetch a very high price".
The personal testimony of the Liberal Democrat and Labour candidates, though, illustrated one of the biggest problems facing the South West today.
