Welsh cattle breeders victim of dirty tricks campaign?

Regulars on the showing circuit, Yvonne and Dylan Hughes from Ty Cerrig, Ty Nant, Corwen, have claimed they were victims of a malicious campaign prior to this year’s Welsh Winter Fair.

After success at the Anglesey Winter Fair, Yvonne says animal health officers turned up unexpectedly on farm asking to test her beef for steroid use after receiving an anonymous tip-off. Blood tests confirmed no traces of steroids and they later went on to win the title of baby beef champion and reserve overall beef champion at the Welsh Fair.
