Cothi Bridge Show

Exhibitors and spectators enjoyed the sunshine again this year at Cothi Bridge.  It was a successful day for Aled and Rachel Davies of Ceredigion with their Hirwaun Simmentals herd – here’s Rachel and daughter Catherine showing their two bulls, Hirwaun Neville and Hirwaun Nos Da, for a win in the pairs class – Neville also took first and reserve breed champion whilst Nos Da was second in his class.  They also gained a first, second and third in the Blue Texel Sheep section.

Meanwhile their near neighbours, the Hickin family, also had a successful day with their Penwen Blondes herd.  It’s very much a family affair for dad Jonathan, mum Michelle and daughters Maisy, Molly and Mia…and pictured is Molly – a stockwoman of the future!

Farm Life

FARM LIFE: The Evans Family

One of the most productive farms in Ceredigion has to be Henbant, Talgarreg run by the Evans family. The farm has been in the Evans family for 100 years, currently run by Emyr and Edwina along with their son Eilir. After returning from 7 months farming in New Zealand some 20 years ago, Eilir shifted the farm’s focus to milk production on grazed grass.
