Brexit, Beef and Bad animal behaviour was the agenda set by the FUW at an Island beef farm on Friday

YNYS MON MP Albert Owen was put under the cosh; as local farmers discussed the present issues that faced the agricultural industry.

“The issues raised today by the farming community are serious and need addressing. Brexit still remains an unknown quantity in the farming industry and the uncertainty is a real worry.”

“Ioan and his wife Helen run a modern, efficient farm here on the Island and their Welsh Black cattle are a credit to them. We must make sure this quality product is protected, given special status and properly marketed.’

Finally, the 1953 animal act (dangerous dogs act) needs updating. The problems facing farmers here on the Island from dog attacks is unacceptable. Sheep and even adult cattle have been savaged by unsupervised dogs. Currently the act is under the jurisdiction of Westminster; maybe its time for it to be devolved and would be a great opportunity to update it which would enable the farmers and the rural police team to deal with this terrible problem more effectively.”

Mr Owen thanked hosts Ioan and Helen Roberts of Tryfil Isaf Llandrygan for hosting the meeting and for their delicious home made refreshments.
