We should be extremely proud of the outstanding quality of food produced by the industry for the UK and beyond.
Despite having to weather many storms in recent years, the farming sector has a unique ability to bounce back after setbacks such as Foot and Mouth and extreme weather conditions. However, TB remains a serious problem - especially in West Wales.
The industry is constantly faced with new challenges having to adapt to continuing changes in legislation, and ever increasing paperwork and form filling...

“Simon and Sian Davies and their two sons Isaac and Elliott farm at Brynhyfryd, Hebron, Whitland to the west of Carmarthenshire. The dairy farm produces 1.7 million litres of milk from the prize winning Castellhyfryd herd of pedigree Holstein cows. Over recent years the business has had to manage major changes covering issues such as succession planning, business management and business growth in terms of cow numbers and land purchase issues together with major investment in new cubicle housing for the cows and new milking facilities. More recently the business has sought advice and guidance to develop off farm income opportunities with the purchase and development of a holiday rental property. The needs of the business have been many and varied. They advice, guidance and creative approach given to us by Clay Shaw Butler has provided us with the information and confidence necessary to undertake such large scale investments”
