Agricultural shows across Wales are going ahead and there is plenty to do and see. Animal movement restrictions, put in place to guard against the spread of the foot and mouth disease from England, mean that livestock won’t be present at the shows but all other aspects of the entertainment carry on as planned.
The Minister said:
Many of our rural economies rely on the success of shows like these and it is so important that people come out and support them. The shows are a great day out and are perfect way to entertain the family as the school holidays draw to a close. There is still so much to see and do.
I must stress that it remains vital that farmers continue to be vigilant and maintain strict biosecurity. I would like to thank all those in rural Wales for their co-operation during this time.
