Local food message to reach rugby fans watching All Blacks face Wales

A worldwide television audience of millions will see a beefy mascot parade before the match between Wales and the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team on November 26.

Cwmcae Brenin 3rd, a 800 kg Welsh Black bull, will appear pitch side at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium immediate before the all-conquering visitors perform their traditional Maori Hakka war dance.

“Brenin is a prime example of the top quality beef reared on the green, green grass of Wales,” said Gareth Vaughan, president of the Farmers Union of Wales, which arranged the beefy demonstration.

“We are thrilled to be able to use this international stage to show off such a wonderful example of Welsh livestock breeding and rearing expertise.”

A public address commentary prepared by the FUW, several members of which have international rugby links, will urge spectators to buy local produce.

Previously the FUW arranged for top breeder Trevor Jones to parade Welsh Black bulls before televised matches between Llanelli Scarlets and French sides Colimiers and Perpignan.
