One of the highlights of the Late Late Toy Show was when young Westmeath farmer Kyle Carty showed Ryan a thing or two about farming.

The young farmer Kyle from Westmeath, who told the Late Late Toy Show host Ryan Tubridy that he farms with his grandfather, was quick to point out the error of Ryan's farming knowledge.

First up he gave a good insight into the running of  farm, saying he farms every month with his grandfather, feeding animals with a bucket.

Then down to the toy mart where he told Tubridy that cattle were being sold, and he proceeded to pretend Tubs was a cow before hunting him into the mart.

Bizarrely the farming scene had a golden tractor, although Kyle was quick to tell Tubridy that not many farmers have golden tractors.

"Do people own golden tractors?" questioned Ryan.  "Not a lot," according to Kyle.

But when Ryan asked what was the yellow grass, Kyle was quick to point out that it's not dyed grass, but corn.

Finally, the duo moved on to the life size cow, where Kyle showed Tubridy how to milk a cow. Tubridy made a fair hand of the hand milking but with 30 seconds on the clock, there was only one winner - Kyle.

However, Twitter reaction to Tubridy working on a farm wasn't so positive, with some telling him to stick to the day job!
