He argues that David should give up dairy; perhaps he could turn to BL? (lowfield.co.uk)

What does this abbreviation mean, which a farmer (Brian) says to the other (Daivd) farmer? The word is voiced at 3’40” in its BBC's audio of 2014-10-24 Friday.

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the abbreviation of a fictional Proper Name, and not related to learning the English language.

Your quote is from a summary of an episode of the BBC radio series The Archers. A Google search for "BL Archers" reveals that BL is an acronym for Borchester Land, a fictional land development company appearing throughout the series.

Brian is apparently suggesting that David should try to make some sort of deal with this company, perhaps to sell his farm.
