10 year livestock ban for Welsh farmer

A Radnorshire farming couple has been banned from keeping sheep and cattle for ten years by Brecon Law Courts in a case brought by Powys County Council.

Andrew and Sarah Irene Thomas, of Brynwig, Llananno, Llandrindod Wells, pleaded guilty at a hearing in September to six charges under the Animal Welfare Act for causing unnecessary suffering to sheep and a further three charges for failing to dispose of sheep carcasses in a prosecution led by the council’s Trading Standards Service. They also asked for a further 28 charges in relation to disposal of sheep carcasses under their ownership to be taken into consideration.
