-Food and drink exports from Wales...

0:00:060:00:08

-..have increased

-by almost 20% in the past year.

0:00:080:00:11

-Will Brexit offer Welsh producers

-greater opportunities?

0:00:120:00:18

-Also on the programme, with

-the Royal Welsh Show next week...

0:00:280:00:32

-..we're at an open day

-organised by Carmarthenshire...

0:00:320:00:36

-..to raise funds for the society.

0:00:360:00:38

-And does Brexit offer opportunities

-for horse breeders...

0:00:390:00:43

-..to develop their businesses?

0:00:430:00:45

-In Ceredigion, Meinir visits

-an unique shearing event...

0:00:460:00:50

-..to celebrate a special landmark

-for one of Wales' YFC clubs.

0:00:500:00:55

-Food and drink is one

-of Wales' largest sectors.

0:00:580:01:01

-250,000 people are employed...

0:01:010:01:04

-..it's worth 17bn a year

-to the country's economy...

0:01:050:01:10

-..and the Welsh Government hope the

-industry will grow by another 30%...

0:01:100:01:15

-..within the next three years.

0:01:150:01:18

-The Welsh Government

-announced a significant increase...

0:01:220:01:25

-..of 20% in Welsh exports

-during the past year.

0:01:260:01:29

-It compares favourably

-with the increase in the UK - 9.6%.

0:01:290:01:35

-72% of exports

-end up in EU countries.

0:01:400:01:45

-More produce than ever before ends

-up in the Middle East and Africa.

0:01:450:01:52

-Encouraging figures,

-but according to Justin King...

0:01:520:01:56

-..former CEO of Sainsbury's...

0:01:560:01:58

-..following Brexit, the food on our

-shelves will be lower in standard...

0:01:590:02:04

-..more expensive

-and there will be less choice...

0:02:040:02:07

-..unless a strong strategy

-is implemented.

0:02:070:02:10

-What are the thoughts of those

-who work in the food industry?

0:02:110:02:15

-Elfed Roberts owns the Spar shops

-in Nefyn and Abersoch.

0:02:170:02:21

-He employs over 40 people and

-he supports local food producers.

0:02:210:02:27

-Is he concerned about the future?

0:02:270:02:30

-I'd say that Brexit's

-had an impact on products already.

0:02:300:02:34

-The costs of products

-has risen 3-5% in the past year.

0:02:340:02:38

-Butter's increased by 88%.

0:02:390:02:41

-How have customers

-responded to this?

0:02:420:02:45

-People complain - they're feeling

-the squeeze in their pockets.

0:02:450:02:49

-They're still spending

-but they're buying less.

0:02:490:02:53

-What's your response

-to the words of Sir Justin King?

0:02:530:02:58

-This is an opportunity

-for us in Wales...

0:02:580:03:01

-..to do something about it.

0:03:010:03:03

-The pound is weak against the Euro.

0:03:030:03:07

-Products are costing more.

0:03:070:03:09

-Local producers should be supplying

-their products to local shops.

0:03:100:03:15

-It's a huge opportunity.

0:03:150:03:17

-Ffor near Pwllheli is home

-to the South Caernarfon Creamery.

0:03:170:03:22

-It's a cooperative dairy company.

0:03:220:03:24

-Over the past year,

-they've recorded record profits...

0:03:250:03:29

-..a little over 3m compared

-to 389,000 the previous year.

0:03:290:03:35

-It's the result

-of many years of hard work...

0:03:380:03:41

-..not just the past 12 months.

0:03:410:03:43

-Last year, the dairy sector

-improved greatly...

0:03:430:03:47

-..from the summer onwards.

0:03:470:03:49

-We've been busy

-with two important projects.

0:03:500:03:54

-We also have

-some excellent customers.

0:03:550:03:58

-This is the result

-of many different factors.

0:03:580:04:02

-What's the future of

-the cheese that you produce here?

0:04:020:04:06

-There's good demand for our produce.

0:04:060:04:08

-We know how we'll grow

-and which customers we'll deal with.

0:04:090:04:13

-We're very clear

-about the direction we're heading.

0:04:140:04:18

-We've seen that cheese imports

-into this country have fallen 20%.

0:04:190:04:25

-People must be buying more British

-cheese than they were before.

0:04:260:04:31

-We export about 5%

-of our Dragon branded cheese...

0:04:320:04:36

-..to places like

-Cyprus, Malta and America.

0:04:360:04:39

-Certainly after Brexit,

-we can identify more opportunities.

0:04:390:04:45

-Our hope is to grow our business

-by 20%.

0:04:450:04:48

-So, it's up to producers

-in this country...

0:04:490:04:53

-..to make the best

-of this situation.

0:04:530:04:56

-Precisely. It is up to us.

0:04:560:04:58

-The future is in our hands,

-as dairy producers and processors.

0:04:580:05:05

-For me, it's an exciting future.

0:05:050:05:08

-Conwy butcher and businessman Ieuan

-Edwards is expanding his company.

0:05:090:05:14

-As well as selling from his shop

-on the high street...

0:05:150:05:18

-..he also sells to supermarkets.

0:05:180:05:21

-80 people are employed by him.

0:05:210:05:24

-Two million sausages

-are made here every month.

0:05:240:05:29

-At the moment, we're growing

-annually, I'm happy to say.

0:05:290:05:34

-We're well supported

-across Great Britain.

0:05:340:05:39

-We don't export that much

-at the moment...

0:05:390:05:42

-..but it's something

-we can look into.

0:05:420:05:45

-We do export to Kuala Lumpur,

-Hong Kong and Malaysia.

0:05:450:05:51

-We do sell

-some of our products there.

0:05:520:05:54

-How do you see things developing

-for you...

0:05:550:05:57

-..in the current political climate?

0:05:580:06:00

-We need to be pioneering as a

-food industry in Wales and Britain.

0:06:000:06:05

-We should look for new markets

-in China.

0:06:050:06:09

-1.2bn people live there.

0:06:090:06:13

-They eat more protein now

-than they did 40 years ago.

0:06:130:06:17

-They're up to 50 kilos per person

-a year, a kilo a week...

0:06:170:06:23

-..but they're behind countries

-like Taiwan who are around 85kgs...

0:06:230:06:28

-..and America at 90-95kgs of meat

-per person, per year.

0:06:280:06:35

-We expect an increase in China

-as the country becomes wealthier.

0:06:360:06:42

-They already eat

-50% of the world's pork there...

0:06:420:06:45

-..and 20% of the world's protein

-as a whole.

0:06:450:06:50

-There are opportunities and it's

-important that the politicians...

0:06:510:06:56

-..try and agree deals right now.

0:06:560:06:59

-When Brexit hits us, we will still

-have markets beyond Europe.

0:07:000:07:06

-Another example would be America.

0:07:060:07:08

-Try and get meat into America -

-impossible...

0:07:090:07:12

-..but it's possible to buy

-plenty of American meat...

0:07:120:07:17

-..USDA beef, in this country.

0:07:170:07:20

-Why does that situation exist?

0:07:200:07:23

-Where are our politicians?

0:07:230:07:25

-They're in the middle of

-negotiations with President Trump.

0:07:250:07:29

-Are they talking about this?

0:07:290:07:31

-Is there an opportunity for farmers

-in the current political climate?

0:07:330:07:38

-There's a huge opportunity

-for farmers to diversify...

0:07:390:07:42

-..following Brexit.

0:07:420:07:44

-They can supply products

-for our own market.

0:07:440:07:47

-It's a great opportunity. Our glass

-is half-full, not half-empty.

0:07:470:07:53

-I can see an opportunity

-for producers and processors.

0:07:560:08:00

-As a country, we import more

-dairy products than we export.

0:08:000:08:06

-There's an opportunity here

-for everyone to increase...

0:08:060:08:11

-..and add value to our markets.

0:08:110:08:13

-I see it as more

-of an opportunity than a threat.

0:08:130:08:17

-It's important that we are confident

-about the future.

0:08:210:08:25

-We should be looking ahead,

-not down.

0:08:250:08:28

-The market is there if we go for it.

0:08:280:08:32

-It's time for a break.

0:08:370:08:39

-Join us later for the celebration

-of a notable landmark...

0:08:390:08:43

-..for one of Wales' YFC clubs.

-Next week, many of us will be

-heading over to Llanelwedd.

0:08:570:09:02

-Over the past year, a lot of events

-have been organised...

0:09:020:09:07

-..by the host county to raise

-awareness and money for the show.

0:09:070:09:12

-Alun attended an open day

-in Carmarthenshire.

0:09:120:09:15

-Whichever agricultural show

-you attend...

0:09:200:09:23

-..you'll see an increase

-in horse numbers.

0:09:230:09:26

-That's reflected

-in the social changes that arise...

0:09:260:09:30

-..from more spare time,

-the interest in riding...

0:09:300:09:34

-..and the general interest

-in rural life.

0:09:340:09:37

-As part of Carmarthenshire's

-campaign to raise funds...

0:09:420:09:45

-..a tour was organised around

-three of the county's stud farms...

0:09:450:09:50

-..starting at the Glyncoch Stud

-in Pwlltrap, St Clear's.

0:09:500:09:54

-The owners are Alan and Jan Pearce

-and Adrian Bowen.

0:09:540:09:59

-It's gone surprisingly well,

-it's one of those things.

0:10:000:10:03

-We've had bad weather leading up to

-it and the weather's come so good.

0:10:040:10:07

-The gate has just said

-we've had over 400 people.

0:10:080:10:12

-Got people from all parts of the UK,

-Holland, Germany and Belgium.

0:10:120:10:18

-I understand that

-you're building up the numbers.

0:10:190:10:22

-We've always had mountain ponies.

0:10:230:10:25

-We're building up the Section C

-and Welsh Cobs.

0:10:250:10:29

-We've had a Royal Welsh winner

-in two sections.

0:10:290:10:32

-Hopefully, we'll have a winner

-in the pony and cob type soon.

0:10:320:10:37

-The Royal Welsh is everybody's No.1.

0:10:370:10:40

-From one end of the county

-to the other.

0:10:400:10:43

-The second stud farm

-is Heniarth near Ferryside.

0:10:430:10:47

-I think the fact that many

-foreigners made the trip to Wales...

0:10:490:10:56

-..is testimony to their passion

-for the cobs and the ponies.

0:10:560:11:02

-It's a passport for us

-to travel around the world.

0:11:050:11:08

-How important

-is the Welsh Cob overseas?

0:11:080:11:13

-It's a very popular,

-the Welsh mountain pony...

0:11:130:11:16

-..all throughout the country.

0:11:160:11:19

-The export market

-it opens up is tremendous.

0:11:190:11:23

-The Royal Welsh

-brings everyone together...

0:11:230:11:27

-..and creates a huge atmosphere

-amongst the breeders.

0:11:270:11:32

-Following on from Brexit...

0:11:320:11:34

-..do you have concerns

-about your European markets...

0:11:340:11:37

-..in the same way as the cattle

-and sheep sector are concerned?

0:11:380:11:41

-There's one primary difference.

0:11:420:11:45

-The horse isn't a commercial animal.

0:11:450:11:49

-This is an opportunity

-for the Government.

0:11:490:11:52

-If they committed

-to giving horses...

0:11:530:11:57

-..the same status

-as cattle and sheep...

0:11:570:12:01

-..as they do in Ireland, they show

-support in respect of taxes...

0:12:010:12:06

-..that's why their horse racing

-industry is so successful.

0:12:060:12:11

-There's an opportunity

-for the Government...

0:12:110:12:14

-..to see how horses contribute

-to the Welsh economy.

0:12:150:12:18

-There's a small window

-of opportunity for them here...

0:12:190:12:22

-..if they're able to grab it.

0:12:220:12:24

-What we have to share

-and sell around the world.

0:12:250:12:28

-You won't find anything better

-anywhere.

0:12:280:12:30

-After visits to St Clear's

-and Ferryside...

0:12:310:12:34

-..the Cothi Valley is the final

-stop, at the Eglwysfach Stud...

0:12:340:12:39

-..at Troedyrhiw Farm, Harford,

-near Pumsaint.

0:12:390:12:42

-Elgan Evans

-welcomes the crowds today.

0:12:420:12:45

-As a child, I'd visit Mam-gu

-and Tad-cu during the holidays.

0:12:460:12:50

-They farmed on the Black Mountain

-near Llyn y Fan.

0:12:500:12:54

-We used to ride horses

-on the farm during a time...

0:12:540:12:57

-..when there were no farm bikes.

0:12:570:12:59

-Everyone rode horses.

0:12:590:13:01

-I was like John Wayne

-on top of the Black Mountain.

0:13:020:13:05

-A time came when I started

-showing an interest in cobs.

0:13:060:13:10

-We kept cobs on the mountains

-and it grew from there.

0:13:100:13:14

-We've won in the Royal Welsh Show.

0:13:150:13:17

-I've been lucky to win a gold medal

-in the Royal Welsh Show.

0:13:170:13:22

-I've enjoyed showing the cobs.

0:13:220:13:25

-How do the cobs

-fit into the rest of your business?

0:13:250:13:29

-You have several strings

-to your bow.

0:13:290:13:32

-As you know, we're farmers.

0:13:320:13:36

-We have 300 sheep

-and we have 30 suckler cows.

0:13:380:13:44

-I also have

-a hay and silage business too.

0:13:440:13:48

-I sell it from these lorries.

0:13:480:13:50

-It's a family farm.

0:13:500:13:53

-The family help out

-in everything we do.

0:13:540:13:57

-I couldn't look after them

-without my wife's help.

0:13:570:14:00

-The children get involved too.

0:14:010:14:04

-What gives me the greatest pleasure,

-as you saw earlier...

0:14:040:14:08

-..the grandchildren

-were riding out in the arena.

0:14:080:14:13

-That's something

-that was well worth seeing.

0:14:130:14:17

-For me, once you own a Welsh Cob,

-it's worse than drinking or smoking!

0:14:180:14:23

-You can't shake it off.

0:14:230:14:26

-Horses are an important part of the

-Carmarthenshire campaign this year.

0:14:260:14:30

-The ambassador commissioned a statue

-of a horse to promote the show.

0:14:310:14:36

-When I was interviewed

-for the role of ambassador...

0:14:360:14:40

-..I was asked about my ideas

-for raising money.

0:14:410:14:44

-I thought about the rugby ball

-in the wall at Cardiff Castle.

0:14:450:14:49

-It was a great promotion

-which everyone talked about.

0:14:500:14:55

-I thought about a statue

-of a horse's head...

0:14:550:14:58

-..on Carmarthen town square.

0:14:580:15:00

-Unfortunately, the council

-planning office refused that idea...

0:15:000:15:05

-..because it was a listed site.

0:15:060:15:08

-We then decided to take it

-on a trailer around the county.

0:15:080:15:12

-Are you looking forward to the show?

0:15:130:15:15

-Are you looking forward to the show?

-

-Very much, yes.

0:15:150:15:16

-I've always supported the show,

-since I was a young girl.

0:15:170:15:20

-Dad always said

-we were going on holidays...

0:15:200:15:24

-..but we only went to the show.

0:15:240:15:27

-I feel as if I've given something

-back to the farming community.

0:15:270:15:32

-A good day for everyone involved.

0:15:380:15:40

-Congratulations to

-the Carmarthenshire committee.

0:15:410:15:44

-Back at the beginning of May...

0:15:450:15:47

-..an event was held to break

-the world welly throwing record...

0:15:470:15:51

-..in Llanarthney.

0:15:520:15:54

-They've received confirmation

-that they did break the record.

0:15:540:15:58

-Great news.

0:15:580:16:00

-Looking ahead to the show...

0:16:010:16:03

-..the YFC plays a significant role

-in the week's timetable.

0:16:030:16:07

-Meinir attended an event

-to celebrate the birthday...

0:16:070:16:11

-..of one of Wales'

-most prominent clubs.

0:16:110:16:14

-There's no doubt about it...

0:16:140:16:16

-..I'm greatly indebted

-to the YFC institution.

0:16:160:16:19

-It offers so many opportunities

-to its members.

0:16:200:16:23

-Tonight, I'm joining the Llanwenog

-club's 60th birthday celebration.

0:16:230:16:28

-To mark this special event...

0:16:290:16:31

-..60 members will shear

-60 Llanwenog sheep.

0:16:310:16:35

-A series of events have been held

-during the past year.

0:16:370:16:40

-Tonight is a very social event.

0:16:400:16:43

-Club secretary Enfys Hatcher has

-been busy helping with arrangements.

0:16:440:16:49

-Some of the shearers

-are in their 80s.

0:16:490:16:53

-There are shearers from 14-84.

-There's a variety of shearers.

0:16:530:16:58

-Some of the oldest shearers

-were founder members of the club.

0:16:580:17:03

-The sheep breed is local to us

-in Llanwenog - the Llanwenog breed.

0:17:030:17:07

-It also celebrates

-its 60th birthday this year.

0:17:080:17:11

-The sheep are owned

-by Huw Evans, Alltgoch...

0:17:110:17:15

-..the honorary chairman

-of Llawenog YFC.

0:17:150:17:18

-He's a very influential individual

-within the club.

0:17:190:17:23

-It's been a year of celebration.

0:17:240:17:26

-It's been a packed year. We've tried

-to organise different events.

0:17:260:17:31

-Today rounds off the year

-with a little fun.

0:17:310:17:34

-The previous event

-was the challenge.

0:17:340:17:37

-We cycled, rowed, ran, walked,

-swam and pulled a tractor...

0:17:380:17:45

-..for 60 miles...

0:17:460:17:48

-..to celebrate

-this notable landmark.

0:17:480:17:52

-We raised money

-for the Alzheimer's Society.

0:17:520:17:55

-How much have you raised?

0:17:560:17:59

-The running total is 7,500.

0:17:590:18:02

-We're still collecting and we're

-proud and grateful to everyone...

0:18:020:18:08

-..for all the help we've received.

0:18:080:18:10

-That's the society's strength.

0:18:110:18:12

-Not only do the members

-enrich their own lives...

0:18:130:18:15

-..but they also help charities.

0:18:160:18:18

-With this year's celebration, we

-wanted to do something for others...

0:18:180:18:23

-..in addition to club members.

0:18:230:18:26

-There are many shearers here

-tonight, some young and some old.

0:18:260:18:31

-It's an enjoyable night

-for all ages.

0:18:320:18:35

-Tommy, you were the oldest shearer

-at 84 years old. How did it go?

0:18:350:18:40

-Very good. I struggled a bit

-but it all came together.

0:18:410:18:44

-I managed to complete it in the end.

0:18:440:18:47

-You're an experienced shearer.

0:18:470:18:48

-You're an experienced shearer.

-

-I haven't sheared for six years.

0:18:480:18:52

-Did you enjoy the experience?

0:18:520:18:55

-Did you enjoy the experience?

-

-Yes.

0:18:550:18:56

-Dilwyn, the three of you

-were founder members.

0:18:560:19:00

-Do you remember the night

-you started the club?

0:19:010:19:04

-I was a 14-year-old

-in school in Lampeter.

0:19:040:19:07

-I heard some boys talking...

0:19:070:19:09

-..about starting a club

-in Llanwenog on Monday nights.

0:19:100:19:14

-That's how it all started.

0:19:150:19:16

-What do you gain

-from being a member?

0:19:170:19:19

-Without the club, I wouldn't have

-gone out of Cardiganshire.

0:19:190:19:27

-I've visited Smithfield

-and the Dairy Show in London.

0:19:270:19:32

-Is it important to celebrate

-a landmark like this?

0:19:330:19:37

-Oh, yes.

-I remember the club starting.

0:19:370:19:41

-Tommy was the treasurer.

0:19:420:19:44

-You were vice-chairman.

0:19:440:19:46

-James Llechwedd was chairman.

0:19:470:19:49

-I've taught four clubs this year

-how to plait rope.

0:19:490:19:54

-Most of them were schoolchildren.

-I enjoyed every minute of it.

0:19:540:19:59

-You've enjoyed your night here.

0:19:590:20:01

-Yes, yes.

0:20:020:20:03

-You'll be back to shear 70 sheep

-when Llanwenog YFC is 70.

0:20:030:20:07

-My hair will be whiter by then.

0:20:070:20:10

-As honorary chairman,

-how does it feel to be part of this?

0:20:120:20:15

-It's so special.

0:20:150:20:16

-Being up there on the stand

-is amazing.

0:20:170:20:19

-The girls are showing the way.

0:20:200:20:22

-We can't let the boys

-have the starring role up there.

0:20:220:20:27

-The girls pitched in, it might

-have taken a little longer...

0:20:270:20:31

-..but I think our sheep

-were a better quality.

0:20:310:20:34

-I think the girls

-could start a contracting business.

0:20:340:20:38

-It's better on the eye

-to see a girl shearing a sheep.

0:20:380:20:41

-You'd have more contracts.

0:20:420:20:43

-You'd have more contracts.

-

-1.50 per sheep!

0:20:430:20:46

-Shearers from different generations

-are shearing tonight.

0:20:460:20:52

-Six members from one

-Llanwnnen family were on stage.

0:20:520:20:56

-At 16 years of age, Gethin is one

-of the night's youngest shearers.

0:20:560:21:01

-It was a great experience

-to be in this atmosphere.

0:21:010:21:05

-It's also great to learn because the

-rural life comes naturally to us.

0:21:050:21:09

-Everyone shears around here.

0:21:090:21:11

-The Llanwenog club

-is a strong club in this area.

0:21:120:21:15

-The club has always been strong...

0:21:150:21:17

-..it's an important part

-of the community.

0:21:180:21:21

-As you can see tonight,

-look at the crowd that's turned out.

0:21:210:21:25

-It brings people together.

0:21:260:21:28

-Gareth, you've returned home

-as the county's education director.

0:21:280:21:32

-This is a bit different.

0:21:330:21:34

-It's different to the day job

-but the pressure is the same!

0:21:350:21:40

-I haven't sheared for 35 years but

-I could still remember how to do it.

0:21:400:21:47

-It's easier to remember

-than to learn.

0:21:480:21:51

-I learnt to shear in the club.

0:21:510:21:53

-I had little interest in farming

-but I learnt to shear in the club.

0:21:530:21:58

-That sums up the YFC - you're doing

-things you don't normally do.

0:21:580:22:03

-When I was a member,

-I did things I didn't want to do.

0:22:040:22:07

-I'm glad I grabbed all

-the opportunities that came my way.

0:22:070:22:11

-I wouldn't be where I am now without

-the support of the Llanwenog club.

0:22:110:22:16

-It's a priceless institution...

0:22:170:22:20

-..and it's where

-I also learned how to shear.

0:22:210:22:24

-You have to join in the fun.

0:22:250:22:27

-That's all for this week

-and this series.

0:22:390:22:42

-We're back on August 21. Cheerio.
