UK - Both Welsh farming unions have made pre-lambing season appeals for action to improve the performance of the fallen stock scheme. Carwyn Jones, Welsh Assembly's rural affairs minister, heard first hand about the problems experienced by farmers when he visited Nick and Kyra Somerfield's hill farm at Bethlehem in Carmarthenshire. "Quite simply, it has been a failure so far," Mr Somerfield told him. Source: FWi
