-Hello and a warm welcome

-to Ffermio...

0:00:170:00:20

-..and to my home -

-Cae Coch in Rhydymain.

0:00:210:00:24

-With only a week to go until

-the Royal Welsh in Llanelwedd...

0:00:240:00:28

-..I'd like to welcome you to this

-year's feature county, Meirionnydd.

0:00:280:00:33

-Coming up,

-Daloni meets Richard Jones...

0:00:350:00:39

-..better known as Dic Auctioneer,

-who sells sheep at Dolgellau Mart.

0:00:390:00:43

-He's the Royal Welsh Agricultural

-Show President this year.

0:00:440:00:47

-I visit Sandilands Farm

-in Tywyn...

0:00:480:00:51

-..the location of September's

-International Sheepdog Trials.

0:00:510:00:55

-But first, back in May...

0:00:550:00:57

-..Meinir visited Cae Ceinach Farm,

-Pennal, near Machynlleth...

0:00:570:01:01

-..to meet the winner

-of the John Gittins Award...

0:01:010:01:04

-..presented

-at last year's Winter Fair...

0:01:050:01:07

-..for innovation in the field

-of sheep genetics.

0:01:070:01:11

-Every year at the Winter Fair...

0:01:140:01:16

-..the John Gittins Memorial Award

-is presented to someone...

0:01:170:01:21

-..who has made a special

-contribution to the sheep industry.

0:01:210:01:25

-At this year's Royal Welsh...

0:01:250:01:27

-..last year's winner

-will be judging cattle.

0:01:270:01:30

-You've received a great honour,

-a result of years of hard work.

0:01:340:01:38

-Yes, definitely.

0:01:390:01:40

-Breeding native sheep of any breed

-doesn't happen overnight.

0:01:400:01:46

-It has been a long, drawn-out,

-difficult but also pleasant time.

0:01:460:01:52

-The genetics of the flock has been

-critical to its development.

0:01:530:01:57

-Many of the rams that I

-and many others now produce...

0:01:570:02:01

-..have more in common

-with their great-grandfathers...

0:02:010:02:04

-..than they do with their fathers.

0:02:050:02:07

-It's different to lowland flocks...

0:02:070:02:10

-..where the progeny

-show characteristics much earlier.

0:02:100:02:14

-In upland flocks like Swaledale,

-Blackface and Welsh Native sheep...

0:02:140:02:18

-..the characteristics take a while

-to permeate down into the flock.

0:02:180:02:24

-Generally in upland flocks,

-not much work has been done.

0:02:250:02:30

-It's all done visually and mentally.

0:02:300:02:35

-That's because the ram and sheep

-have to suit the landscape...

0:02:350:02:39

-..like the landscape

-we can see here today.

0:02:390:02:44

-If the flock doesn't suit the

-habitat, it will not thrive at all.

0:02:450:02:50

-It's important to keep

-mountain sheep in the mountains.

0:02:500:02:54

-Yes, indeed.

-We are in North and Mid Wales today.

0:02:540:03:00

-But it's the same

-in the mountains of South Wales.

0:03:000:03:03

-It's the foundation

-of the Mule sheep.

0:03:040:03:08

-Whether it's a Welsh Mountain

-white-face, yellow-face...

0:03:080:03:12

-..or speckled-face sheep.

0:03:120:03:13

-They are a sound foundation

-for Welsh flocks.

0:03:130:03:18

-What has driven you over the years?

0:03:180:03:20

-I've been interested

-since I was a young boy.

0:03:200:03:23

-My father and grandfather

-were both interested in sheep.

0:03:230:03:27

-I'd help my father with the sheep.

0:03:270:03:29

-I was fascinated from a young age.

0:03:300:03:32

-I'm only doing

-what I was brought up to do.

0:03:340:03:37

-I didn't know anything different.

0:03:370:03:39

-I loved going to school

-and was happy doing academic work.

0:03:400:03:44

-But the pull to come home to

-the sheep and cattle was too strong.

0:03:440:03:50

-His genetic work has really

-paid dividends for Alwyn.

0:03:520:03:55

-He has broken two auction records

-for Welsh Mountain sheep.

0:03:550:03:59

-He has the highest average price

-of 6,000 guineas...

0:03:590:04:02

-..for the best pen of rams.

0:04:030:04:05

-He also received

-the highest price for the breed...

0:04:050:04:08

-..23,000 guineas

-for a yearling ram.

0:04:080:04:11

-You've had some great prices

-over the years...

0:04:140:04:17

-..and by the look of these,

-it augurs well for this year too.

0:04:170:04:21

-We shall see.

-Every year is different.

0:04:210:04:23

-We'll cross that bridge

-when it comes.

0:04:240:04:26

-What are the qualities

-of this unique breed?

0:04:270:04:30

-The structure of the body

-must be right...

0:04:300:04:34

-..its shape, bones and mouth.

0:04:340:04:37

-They are essential.

0:04:370:04:38

-It's similar to a wedding cake.

0:04:380:04:42

-The cake

-must be right to begin with...

0:04:420:04:46

-..before you add layers of icing.

0:04:460:04:49

-You choose the colour of the ram

-and the type of horns.

0:04:500:04:53

-The yellow or yellow-red colour...

0:04:540:04:56

-..is essential for us

-in Meirionnydd and North Wales.

0:04:570:05:01

-A yellow colour on the nose.

0:05:010:05:03

-A red neck is quite fancied too,

-as is colour on the legs.

0:05:030:05:08

-As long as it's in the right place.

0:05:080:05:10

-You've had some amazing prices

-over the years.

0:05:110:05:14

-23,000 guineas for one ram.

0:05:140:05:16

-Yes, we've been very fortunate.

0:05:160:05:19

-I knew there was something special

-about that yearling ram...

0:05:190:05:22

-..but I never thought

-it'd make that much money...

0:05:220:05:25

-..the morning

-I took it to the market.

0:05:250:05:28

-It's a lot of money

-but I can assure you...

0:05:280:05:32

-..that the thrill of walking

-out of the ring that morning...

0:05:320:05:36

-..was worth more than any guinea.

0:05:360:05:39

-Is there a ram worth 23,000...

0:05:400:05:44

-..in this pen here today?

0:05:440:05:47

-I very much doubt it.

0:05:470:05:49

-Every sector in Wales and Britain...

0:05:500:05:52

-..finds itself in a very different

-financial situation.

0:05:530:05:57

-There is definitely not

-a 23,000 ram here...

0:05:570:06:00

-..and that's because

-of the financial situation.

0:06:000:06:04

-Alwyn isn't only an expert on sheep.

0:06:060:06:09

-Back in the 1990s...

0:06:090:06:10

-..the family established

-a Charolais pedigree cattle herd.

0:06:110:06:14

-There's no doubt that Alwyn

-has an eye for high-quality stock.

0:06:140:06:19

-At this year's Royal Welsh,

-he has the honour of judging...

0:06:200:06:23

-..one of the most notable

-competitions in the cattle ring...

0:06:230:06:27

-..the Supreme Championship.

0:06:270:06:29

-This year's Royal Welsh

-is going to be a big week for you.

0:06:300:06:34

-It's going to be a very busy week.

0:06:340:06:37

-It's a great honour to judge

-the cattle Supreme Championship.

0:06:380:06:43

-Are you nervous?

0:06:430:06:44

-Are you nervous?

-

-Yes.

0:06:440:06:45

-In one word, yes!

0:06:450:06:46

-It's such a great honour,

-not just because of the judging.

0:06:470:06:51

-It's a real honour.

0:06:510:06:53

-It's very emotional to be chosen

-to judge at the Royal Welsh...

0:06:530:06:57

-..a show that's meant so much to me

-since I was a child.

0:06:570:07:00

-You are a Charolais man. Will you

-keep loyal to the breed at the Show?

0:07:010:07:05

-It might well go the other way.

0:07:060:07:09

-When you judge part-bred animals...

0:07:100:07:13

-..your own breed

-is possibly at a disadvantage.

0:07:130:07:17

-You feel

-that you're under the spotlight.

0:07:170:07:19

-I will have a completely open mind.

0:07:200:07:23

-You have already judged

-across the whole country.

0:07:240:07:26

-Yes, and also in Ireland

-and other places.

0:07:270:07:31

-But maybe at the Showground

-in Llanelwedd...

0:07:310:07:35

-..at the Royal Welsh Show with

-Meirionnydd as the feature county...

0:07:350:07:40

-..the pressure will be on.

0:07:400:07:42

-You have experienced success

-with sheep and cattle...

0:07:430:07:46

-..but are you a sheep

-or a cattle man at heart?

0:07:460:07:49

-By the virtue of my roots,

-a sheep man...

0:07:490:07:52

-..but through my work, it's both.

0:07:520:07:54

-My grandfather was a shepherd,

-my father was a farmer...

0:07:550:07:58

-..and I am a farmer.

0:07:590:08:00

-As this is the feature county

-this year, as tradition dictates...

0:08:060:08:10

-..one of the county's residents

-is named RWAS President.

0:08:110:08:14

-Daloni's been to meet

-the man himself, Richard Jones...

0:08:150:08:19

-..near Llyn Tegid, Bala.

0:08:190:08:21

-It's an honour to be elected

-as President, Dic...

0:08:270:08:30

-..by the people of your county.

0:08:310:08:33

-A huge honour.

0:08:340:08:35

-It's incredible.

0:08:350:08:37

-I couldn't...

0:08:380:08:40

-For a few weeks,

-I couldn't believe it.

0:08:400:08:45

-It took time to sink in.

0:08:460:08:48

-You were elected

-by the people of your county.

0:08:490:08:52

-Yes, Meirionnydd.

0:08:520:08:54

-They are the ones who appointed me.

0:08:540:08:58

-What exactly

-does the RWAS President do?

0:08:590:09:02

-There are a lot of answers to that.

0:09:020:09:05

-Well...

0:09:060:09:07

-We have to remember

-that our agricultural show...

0:09:080:09:11

-..is the biggest in Europe

-and possibly the world.

0:09:120:09:15

-There isn't a similar show anywhere.

0:09:150:09:17

-To be President, you have to be...

0:09:170:09:20

-..in the public eye...

0:09:220:09:25

-..promoting the Show

-and selling it to the public.

0:09:260:09:29

-Have you been involved with the Show

-for long?

0:09:300:09:33

-I've been involved with the Show

-since the 1970s.

0:09:330:09:37

-I competed with the Young Farmers

-at one time.

0:09:380:09:43

-I've been a part of it since then.

0:09:430:09:46

-I'm the Chief Steward

-in the Cattle Ring.

0:09:460:09:49

-How passionate are the people of

-Meirionnydd about the Royal Welsh?

0:09:490:09:54

-There's a strong interest

-in the Show in Meirionnydd.

0:09:560:09:59

-You have to remember

-that people from the county...

0:10:000:10:03

-..have been successful and been

-very prominent at the Royal Welsh.

0:10:040:10:08

-That has been the case

-for many years.

0:10:080:10:11

-Meirionnydd

-is split into seven areas.

0:10:110:10:15

-Every area

-does their bit to raise money.

0:10:150:10:20

-You live in Corwen now,

-but where were you raised?

0:10:200:10:25

-I am from Cwm Penmachno.

0:10:260:10:27

-I was raised on a farm

-in Cwm Penmachno.

0:10:270:10:30

-How did you start your career?

0:10:300:10:32

-It's quite an interesting story.

0:10:340:10:36

-I'd go to the market in Abergele

-with my father on Mondays.

0:10:360:10:40

-Joe Brooks was in charge

-of Abergele market then.

0:10:410:10:44

-There was another auctioneer there,

-Alf Williams.

0:10:440:10:48

-I'd speak with Alf a lot.

0:10:480:10:50

-One day,

-he asked me if I was interested.

0:10:500:10:53

-I told him I would be interested

-in becoming an auctioneer.

0:10:530:10:57

-Do you remember the first time

-you grabbed that gavel and used it?

0:10:580:11:02

-I remember it well.

0:11:020:11:04

-I had been working there

-since September.

0:11:040:11:09

-On a Monday

-the following January...

0:11:100:11:16

-..Joe Brooks told me

-I'd be going to sell poultry.

0:11:160:11:21

-"How on earth would I do that?"

-I said to him.

0:11:210:11:24

-He replied, "You'll soon learn."

0:11:240:11:26

-Selling chickens.

0:11:260:11:27

-Selling chickens.

-

-Yes.

0:11:270:11:28

-It is the kind of job

-where you learn as you go.

0:11:290:11:34

-So you started by selling chickens.

-What else have you sold?

0:11:340:11:38

-I've sold everything. I'll sell

-anything that's put in front of me.

0:11:390:11:43

-I'll sell you!

0:11:430:11:43

-I'll sell you!

-

-You wouldn't get much for me!

0:11:430:11:45

-Dic has been an auctioneer

-in Dolgellau for over 40 years.

0:11:480:11:51

-He now knows the county

-and its people through and through.

0:11:510:11:56

-I'm sure you're looking forward

-to the Show, Dic.

0:11:570:12:01

-It'll be a big week for you.

0:12:010:12:03

-Yes. As I understand it,

-I'm in demand at the moment.

0:12:040:12:08

-I'm hoping that I can have an hour

-to do what I do every year...

0:12:090:12:14

-..and that is taking charge

-of the cattle shed.

0:12:160:12:20

-I do it year to year.

0:12:200:12:22

-You won't be selling anything?

0:12:220:12:25

-Yes.

0:12:250:12:25

-Yes.

-

-Are you?

0:12:250:12:26

-Yes.

0:12:260:12:27

-Meat Promotion Wales have asked me

-to sell lamb carcasses...

0:12:280:12:32

-..to raise money for a good cause.

0:12:320:12:35

-But no chickens.

0:12:350:12:36

-But no chickens.

-

-No, there won't be any chickens.

0:12:360:12:39

-I hope not.

0:12:390:12:41

-Thank you very much for the chat.

0:12:410:12:43

-I hope you have a good week.

0:12:430:12:44

-I hope you have a good week.

-

-Thank you.

0:12:440:12:46

-That's it for this part.

0:12:530:12:54

-After a short break...

0:12:550:12:56

-..I'll be leaving the Rhinogs

-and heading for the sea...

0:12:570:13:00

-..to meet Annest and Geraint Owen

-from Sandilands Farm, Tywyn.

0:13:010:13:05

-They are preparing to welcome

-the International Sheepdog Trials.

0:13:050:13:09

-I'll see you in two minutes.

0:13:090:13:11

-Welcome back to Ffermio

-from Meirionnydd's Dysynni Valley.

0:13:210:13:25

-The county motto claims that Meirion

-shall exist as long as the sea does.

0:13:270:13:32

-It has mountains too - the Arenig,

-Moelwyns, Rhinogs, Cader Idris...

0:13:320:13:37

-..Rhobell and the Arans.

0:13:370:13:39

-Most of the land

-is over 800 feet above sea level.

0:13:390:13:45

-As such, it's ideal

-for keeping mountain sheep.

0:13:460:13:49

-When you keep sheep in the uplands,

-good dogs are a necessity.

0:13:500:13:54

-Later this year,

-the home nations' best dogs...

0:13:540:13:58

-..will show off their talents at the

-International Sheepdog Trials...

0:13:580:14:04

-..held at Sandilands Farm in Tywyn.

0:14:040:14:07

-The trials take place

-from 9-11 September...

0:14:120:14:16

-..on Geraint Owen

-and his family's land.

0:14:160:14:19

-Currently home

-to 2,000 sheep and 350 cattle...

0:14:190:14:22

-..these fields will look

-very different later this year.

0:14:230:14:27

-I'm the third generation here.

0:14:290:14:31

-But Dad's still the boss of us

-as a family!

0:14:320:14:35

-Me, my brother and two sisters.

0:14:350:14:38

-And the partners and children.

0:14:380:14:40

-Everyone's involved.

0:14:400:14:42

-We treat it as a family business.

0:14:420:14:44

-The farm's name, Sandilands,

-suggests the type of land.

0:14:440:14:49

-It varies.

0:14:490:14:50

-Below the town, it is more marshy.

0:14:510:14:53

-It can be quite wet in winter.

0:14:530:14:55

-But at the end, towards the river,

-it's more sandy.

0:14:550:14:59

-As for the breed of sheep,

-you prefer a Texel cross.

0:14:590:15:04

-Yes, Texel cross Mule, usually.

0:15:050:15:08

-I keep the Texel lambs

-out of Mule ewes.

0:15:080:15:12

-They're then given a Texel ram

-to get 75-25 cross lambs.

0:15:120:15:17

-When will you sell these lambs?

0:15:170:15:19

-We'll start in early June

-through to the end of January.

0:15:190:15:23

-Everything goes to Welshpool mart.

0:15:240:15:27

-We strongly believe

-in selling live lambs.

0:15:280:15:31

-For me, one of the highlights

-of being at Dolgellau mart...

0:15:320:15:36

-..is seeing the Sandilands lorry

-unload 30-50 near-identical cattle.

0:15:370:15:43

-It's incredible. They're Limousins.

0:15:430:15:46

-We mostly keep pure Limousins.

0:15:460:15:48

-We sometimes use

-a Belgian Blue bull...

0:15:480:15:51

-..just to get

-some show potential stock.

0:15:510:15:55

-As well as farming 1,200 acres...

0:15:570:16:00

-..the family also owns

-numerous caravan parks.

0:16:000:16:04

-As a seaside resort, Tywyn's

-population doubles in summer.

0:16:040:16:08

-As such, tourism is a central part

-of the local economy.

0:16:080:16:11

-On the way in, I noticed tents

-and touring caravans.

0:16:120:16:16

-Then there are these, statics.

0:16:160:16:18

-Yes, static caravans.

0:16:180:16:20

-This is quite an investment.

0:16:200:16:22

-Yes, the one we're in is 50,000.

0:16:220:16:26

-Most of the ones we sell...

0:16:270:16:30

-..are in the 20,000-30,000 range.

0:16:300:16:34

-Some of the people here...

0:16:340:16:37

-..have been with us

-for almost 40 years.

0:16:380:16:40

-You must be

-quite a substantial local employer.

0:16:410:16:44

-We employ about 20,

-between everything.

0:16:440:16:47

-Do you really?

0:16:470:16:48

-Between the boys on the farm

-and the tourism side of things.

0:16:480:16:52

-There's quite a bit of work.

0:16:530:16:55

-There's quite a bit of work.

-

-Seaside towns are like magnets.

0:16:550:16:58

-For tourists, yes.

0:16:580:16:59

-Farming and tourism

-are what makes Tywyn.

0:16:590:17:03

-Geraint and his family

-are used to holding sheepdog trials.

0:17:040:17:08

-But how much extra work is there

-to prepare for such an event?

0:17:090:17:13

-Well, Geraint, we're in the field.

0:17:140:17:17

-It's huge.

0:17:170:17:18

-Yes, it's 100 acres.

0:17:180:17:21

-This land used to be

-a military camp, with an airstrip.

0:17:210:17:25

-Years ago.

0:17:250:17:28

-I can't imagine there are many

-fields this size in the county.

0:17:280:17:32

-As such, it's important.

0:17:320:17:34

-As such, it's important.

-

-I suppose so, yes.

0:17:340:17:35

-They need quite a big field.

0:17:350:17:37

-They wanted an 800-metre run

-on the final day.

0:17:370:17:41

-This looks perfect.

0:17:420:17:44

-800 metres is a long way!

0:17:440:17:45

-800 metres is a long way!

-

-I doubt I could see the dog!

0:17:450:17:47

-I'd have to take a quad bike.

0:17:480:17:49

-Is that how you gather the sheep?

0:17:500:17:51

-Is that how you gather the sheep?

-

-Yes, mostly.

0:17:510:17:52

-And lots of shouting.

0:17:520:17:54

-I don't do sheepdogs.

0:17:550:17:56

-We've got dogs,

-but they're not trialling dogs.

0:17:560:18:00

-As well as providing the field,

-you're also the event's president.

0:18:000:18:06

-Yes, it's quite a privilege.

0:18:060:18:08

-The society asked me,

-fair play to them.

0:18:080:18:11

-I took the job on.

0:18:110:18:13

-Hopefully, I won't have to make

-too many speeches!

0:18:140:18:17

-What are your responsibilities

-as regards preparing the field?

0:18:170:18:22

-I'll have to top it

-and tidy it up a bit.

0:18:220:18:26

-I'll also move the sheep from here.

0:18:260:18:28

-Whatever else they want,

-I'll be here to help.

0:18:280:18:32

-Great.

0:18:320:18:33

-It's for the area,

-more than anything.

0:18:330:18:36

-The whole town is behind it.

0:18:370:18:39

-Everyone's glad it's coming.

0:18:390:18:41

-It's up to us to give it our best.

0:18:410:18:43

-It's a showcase for Tywyn.

0:18:440:18:46

-I can't fail to notice one thing

-that stands out in this field.

0:18:460:18:50

-That post there.

0:18:500:18:52

-This is the post

-where they'll start their runs.

0:18:530:18:58

-All the commands

-will come from here.

0:18:580:19:01

-The outrun will go to the far end.

0:19:010:19:04

-The dog

-will probably be out of sight.

0:19:040:19:07

-Was it a big job

-to decide where the post went?

0:19:070:19:10

-They all came here one evening...

0:19:100:19:12

-..and there were 30 or 40

-involved in the decision.

0:19:130:19:16

-They were quite fussy

-about its location.

0:19:160:19:19

-I'd never have guessed...

0:19:190:19:21

-..but getting the post

-in the right place was important.

0:19:210:19:25

-Back in 1968,

-Llyr Evans of Bodilan Fach...

0:19:320:19:35

-..just up the valley behind me...

0:19:360:19:38

-..won the Supreme Championship

-with his famous dog, Bosworth Coon.

0:19:380:19:44

-As the event returns

-to the very same field...

0:19:440:19:47

-..will we have a Welsh winner again?

0:19:470:19:49

-The event's chairman is Dylan

-Davies, Maes-y-Pandy, Tal-y-llyn.

0:19:550:20:00

-I was asked to be chairman.

0:20:010:20:03

-I expected it to be a bit of work,

-but not as much as it is.

0:20:040:20:08

-It's a big show,

-which takes a lot of organizing.

0:20:080:20:11

-It's now an international event...

0:20:110:20:14

-..with competitors

-from the home nations and beyond.

0:20:140:20:17

-All the four home nations

-are represented there...

0:20:180:20:21

-..and they'll all be trying

-to win the championship.

0:20:210:20:25

-But we have people from Belgium,

-Sweden, Norway, the USA...

0:20:250:20:29

-..all over the world,

-coming to the show.

0:20:290:20:32

-It's a special event

-in the sheepdog world.

0:20:320:20:35

-Foreign visitors love to come

-to see what's going on here.

0:20:360:20:42

-There's a lot of money

-in sheepdogs...

0:20:420:20:46

-..especially when you export them.

0:20:460:20:49

-It's quite a big business.

0:20:490:20:51

-Winning the event

-is more than an honour.

0:20:510:20:54

-Winning such a major

-international title...

0:20:540:20:58

-..can open doors for them anywhere.

0:20:580:21:00

-It's lucky

-that you're a cool character, Dylan.

0:21:010:21:05

-As well as the sheepdogs,

-there's a country festival.

0:21:050:21:10

-It has grown

-from being just a sheepdog event.

0:21:100:21:14

-It's a country festival.

-There are trade stands.

0:21:150:21:18

-It's a family day out,

-with something for everyone.

0:21:180:21:21

-How has the Wales sheepdog team

-been getting on of late?

0:21:210:21:26

-Quite well.

0:21:260:21:28

-Last year's champion

-was Aled Owen from Corwen.

0:21:280:21:31

-He'll be a big danger

-this year as well.

0:21:320:21:35

-We don't know yet

-who will be on the team this year.

0:21:350:21:40

-But there are strong competitors

-across North Wales...

0:21:410:21:45

-..and from South Wales as well.

0:21:450:21:47

-I understand

-that you're providing the sheep.

0:21:470:21:50

-The sheep come from the farm

-that I manage, Ruth Tudor's farm.

0:21:510:21:55

-Yes, they'll be our sheep.

0:21:550:21:58

-How important to you personally

-are sheepdog trials?

0:21:580:22:01

-I've been running sheepdogs

-for eight years, so I'm a novice.

0:22:020:22:06

-But I've definitely caught the bug.

0:22:070:22:10

-It's in my blood by now.

0:22:100:22:13

-It's been a strain,

-but can you look forward to it now?

0:22:130:22:17

-Yes, you have to enjoy it.

0:22:170:22:19

-It isn't every day

-that an international event...

0:22:190:22:22

-..takes place on your doorstep,

-in the area where you grew up.

0:22:220:22:26

-Chairing such an event

-is a great honour and a privilege.

0:22:260:22:30

-It's a great thing for Tywyn,

-because what comes there?

0:22:300:22:34

-We're on a headland,

-in a corner of the county.

0:22:350:22:38

-Very few big events come there,

-so this will open people's eyes.

0:22:380:22:42

-It will benefit local businesses,

-accommodation providers, everything.

0:22:430:22:48

-The whole town will pull together.

0:22:480:22:51

-Good luck to the event.

0:23:010:23:03

-We'll have highlights of the trials

-on Ffermio in September.

0:23:040:23:09

-That's all for this week,

-and for this series of Ffermio.

0:23:090:23:13

-May you enjoy a pleasant Show

-and a successful summer on the land.

0:23:140:23:19

-We'll be back on Monday, 15 August.

0:23:190:23:22

-Until then, from the shadow of

-Bird's Rock in the Dysynni Valley...

0:23:220:23:27

-..from me and the Ffermio team...

0:23:270:23:29

-..thank you for your support

-during the series, and goodbye.
