Video: Return of native beef breed benefits Welsh farm

Livestock farmer Richard Lewis swapped his Limousin cattle for native Welsh Blacks and has seen the farm flourish.

He invested in 45 head of the cattle, which was quite an investment, but is seeing the benefits.

The farmland biodiversity has thrived from grazing the low maintenance breed and he has managed, also, to cut production costs.

Hear more about the switch in the Ffermio video.
