-For me, the Winter Fair

-is the first sign of Christmas.

0:00:250:00:30

-That warm feeling of being among

-friends enjoying and socializing.

0:00:300:00:35

-If the sun shined

-on the Royal Welsh...

0:00:350:00:38

-..the Winter Fair was two days

-of magnificent winter weather.

0:00:380:00:43

-So sit back for the next hour...

0:00:440:00:46

-..and enjoy all the colour

-and excitement of the Winter Fair.

0:00:460:00:50

-A Fair to remember.

-A Fair to warm the heart.

0:00:500:00:53

-My name is Denley Jenkins.

-I come from near Newcastle Emlyn.

0:01:140:01:20

-We come here as a family every year.

0:01:200:01:23

-My wife, Brenda, and my youngest son

-and daughter-in-law.

0:01:230:01:28

-Teleri will be a steward

-with the cattle.

0:01:290:01:32

-My role as a mother is to ensure

-they all have clean clothes.

0:01:340:01:38

-White overalls for everyone.

0:01:380:01:40

-Also, food for everyone. It's a big

-occasion when we all eat together.

0:01:410:01:46

-I bring my kitchen with me!

0:01:460:01:48

-This is a better show

-than the Royal Welsh.

0:01:500:01:53

-There is so much friendship here.

0:01:530:01:55

-It's great to see those friends

-from one year to the next...

0:01:560:02:00

-..in the Winter Fair.

0:02:000:02:02

-Welsh produce

-is some of the best around.

0:02:030:02:06

-That's very important to me.

0:02:060:02:09

-Rural life must be championed.

0:02:090:02:13

-A dry Monday morning

-drew big crowds to the Fair.

0:02:170:02:21

-Over 18,500 people

-came through the gates.

0:02:210:02:25

-Over 6,000 cars

-filled the car parks.

0:02:260:02:30

-It was a record crowd

-for a memorable first day.

0:02:300:02:35

-Nowhere conveys the journey from

-farm to fork like the Winter Fair.

0:02:440:02:49

-The Young Butcher of the Year

-is ongoing here.

0:02:490:02:52

-Who better to discuss this contest

-than Aled Jones...

0:02:520:02:56

-..the butcher from Llanfyllin.

0:02:560:02:59

-How important is a competition

-like this one?

0:02:590:03:02

-These youngsters are the future.

0:03:030:03:06

-They need to take up the mantle

-and keep the business going.

0:03:060:03:10

-If they don't come on,

-butchers' shops have no future.

0:03:110:03:15

-What's the task ahead?

-What will the judges be looking for?

0:03:160:03:20

-If I was judging, I'd be looking

-at how much waste is left over.

0:03:200:03:24

-I wouldn't just look

-at the display.

0:03:240:03:27

-There's no profit

-in what's in the rubbish.

0:03:270:03:31

-Make the most

-of what you have every time.

0:03:320:03:34

-Sam Hughes, Brian Crane Butchers,

-Maesycwmmer, congratulations.

0:03:400:03:44

-How did you get into butchery?

0:03:440:03:46

-I kind of fell into it really.

0:03:460:03:49

-I went to university for acting,

-it didn't work out.

0:03:490:03:52

-I've got a small family

-I need to provide for.

0:03:520:03:55

-I got a full-time job

-in my local butcher's shop.

0:03:550:03:59

-That was 18 months ago and now I'm

-winning competitions apparently.

0:03:590:04:03

-Enjoying it?

0:04:030:04:03

-Enjoying it?

-

-Yeah, it's great!

0:04:030:04:04

-Congratulations. Well done.

0:04:050:04:06

-..to collect the

-Pedigree Breeder of the Year Award.

0:04:400:04:44

0:04:520:04:53

0:05:230:05:26

-at the Winter Fair...

0:05:390:05:43

-..is the horse section.

0:05:430:05:45

-David Oliver

-is never far from the action.

0:05:450:05:47

-Alright?

0:05:480:05:49

0:05:510:05:54

-..the Welsh Mountain Pony

0:05:550:05:57

-What can we expect, Peter?

0:05:570:05:59

-I can't tell you the final order!

0:06:010:06:03

-She's got some directions

0:06:310:06:36

-The Section A champion, Chris.

-How do you feel?

0:06:380:06:41

-Over the moon,

-especially with a home-bred filly.

0:06:410:06:45

-I've been breeding for years.

-I also bred her mother.

0:06:450:06:49

-She's a full sister

-to our stallion back at home.

0:06:490:06:53

-Great times. Thoroughly pleased.

0:06:530:06:57

-Congratulations.

0:06:580:06:59

-This year, the Fair is paying

-tribute to a very special man...

0:07:250:07:28

-..a former Winter Fair Chairman,

-Emyr Lewis, Bacheiddion farm.

0:07:280:07:34

-The late Emyr Lewis' contribution

-to the Winter Fair...

0:07:370:07:42

-..and to the Royal Welsh

-was priceless.

0:07:420:07:45

-I have very fond memories of him.

0:07:460:07:49

-The cheeky smile

-and his witty sense of humour.

0:07:490:07:53

-He was a very likeable man.

0:07:530:07:55

-He was a great huntsman

-and a true country character.

0:07:550:08:00

-As far as the Winter Fair

-is concerned...

0:08:030:08:06

-..he was on the committee

-when it started in 1990.

0:08:060:08:10

-Ten years ago, he had the honour

-of being Chairman...

0:08:110:08:14

-..of the executive committee

-which organizes the Fair.

0:08:140:08:18

-I'm sure

-he's looking down on us today...

0:08:190:08:22

-..and saying about the Fair,

-"A job well done."

0:08:220:08:25

-Like Emyr would often say,

-"Just get on with it!"

0:08:280:08:31

-His one-liners were priceless.

0:08:320:08:35

-# Hosanna in excelsis #

0:08:360:08:40

-Through Emyr Lewis's

-leadership and vision...

0:08:410:08:44

-..the best come to the Winter Fair.

0:08:440:08:47

-On Monday night, entry to the Fair

-is free after 4.00pm.

0:09:200:09:25

-An extra 2,000 people turned up to

-enjoy the nocturnal entertainment.

0:09:250:09:30

-It's Christmas at the Food Hall.

0:09:380:09:41

-As you can see, the stallholders

-have made a special effort...

0:09:410:09:45

-..to decorate their stalls.

0:09:450:09:47

-There are over 60 producers

-showcasing their goods here.

0:09:470:09:50

-I'm on the Tregroes Waffle stand

-with singer Kees Huysmans.

0:09:540:09:59

-Tregroes waffles have gone crackers.

0:09:590:10:03

-For a long time...

0:10:030:10:04

-..we thought about doing something

-that would suit Welsh cheese.

0:10:040:10:08

-Then we developed these where

-there is cheese in the biscuit.

0:10:090:10:14

-It's absolutely amazing.

0:10:140:10:16

-Don't forget to buy our waffles,

-they are our bread and butter.

0:10:170:10:21

-Will you sing for us

-to attract customers?

0:10:210:10:23

-It's a bit early.

0:10:240:10:26

-This is Cusan's stand.

-This stuff looks dangerous.

0:10:320:10:35

-I've got a new one out this year.

0:10:360:10:39

-It's called Cusan Nadolig.

0:10:390:10:41

-They're small liqueurs

-that I make myself.

0:10:410:10:44

-Shall we have some?

0:10:440:10:46

-Good luck and to your good health.

0:10:470:10:48

-Good luck and to your good health.

-Merry Christmas!

0:10:480:10:50

0:11:190:11:21

0:11:220:11:24

0:11:240:11:26

-It was a brainwave.

0:11:260:11:29

-We have leather.

0:11:300:11:30

-We have leather.

-

-It's Fairtrade.

0:11:300:11:32

0:11:330:11:36

-We started out

-with socks and nylons - hold-ups!

0:11:360:11:39

-We sold them all, 2.50 a pair.

0:11:400:11:42

-Yes, pink and red ones.

0:11:420:11:44

-If we're asked, we'll be there.

0:12:030:12:06

-We were here in the summer

-Tuesday was a cold morning

-that called for thermals.

0:12:430:12:49

-But the championships and auctions

-warmed the blood.

0:12:500:12:54

-Ifan Phillips, I'm told that...

0:13:020:13:04

-..when it comes to leading heifers

-and steers, you're the man.

0:13:040:13:08

-I like to think

-I know what I'm doing.

0:13:080:13:10

-Our family has been exhibiting

-cattle for generations.

0:13:110:13:14

-It's not something new.

0:13:140:13:16

-It's not something new.

-

-Who do we have here?

0:13:160:13:17

-This is Downtown Funk,

-a Limousin-cross steer.

0:13:170:13:20

-What do you do as the person

-who leads? What do you have to do?

0:13:200:13:24

-It's a skill

-to show off an animal in a ring.

0:13:250:13:28

-You have to keep the head up

-and the back straight.

0:13:290:13:32

-You've got the stick here.

-What's it for?

0:13:320:13:35

-We use the stick mostly

-to get him to stand properly.

0:13:350:13:38

-We also use it to tickle

-the belly. That keeps him quiet.

0:13:390:13:42

-He'll tense himself up

-and enjoy himself then.

0:13:420:13:45

-Four solid legs

-and forward-pointing ears.

0:13:450:13:48

-How do you do that?

0:13:480:13:50

-You've got to make a bit of noise.

0:13:500:13:52

-KISSING NOISES

0:13:530:13:54

-He looks fantastic.

0:13:540:13:57

-Tuesday morning turned into a story

-of success for the Brute Family.

0:14:020:14:06

-It all started with the young

-heifers in the Baby Beef section.

0:14:060:14:11

-This is the third and final

-heifer class in the Baby Beef.

0:14:120:14:16

-He's chosen his winners

-after having a detailed look.

0:14:160:14:20

-He's done it quickly.

-He doesn't waste time.

0:14:200:14:23

-Not at all.

0:14:230:14:25

-Brutus Cheeky Girl owned by

-the Brute Family won her class.

0:14:280:14:32

-She moved on

-to the heifer championship.

0:14:330:14:35

-These three have caught the eye

-from the start.

0:14:380:14:41

-She's quite a heifer.

0:14:430:14:44

-The camera's focusing on her back.

0:14:440:14:47

-You liked her

-when she first came into the ring.

0:14:480:14:51

-Yes.

0:14:510:14:52

-There we are. Brut wins it.

0:14:570:15:00

-Brut, the Winter Fair Queen.

0:15:010:15:04

-How would the family

-get on with the steers?

0:15:040:15:08

-He's changed his mind.

0:15:090:15:10

-He's changed his mind.

-

-He's swapped the order.

0:15:100:15:12

-Sellers has moved up.

0:15:130:15:15

-Sellers has moved up.

-

-That's it now.

0:15:150:15:16

-He won't change the order again.

0:15:170:15:19

-First place goes to...

0:15:200:15:23

-..the Brute family from Talyllyn.

0:15:230:15:27

-Another red rosette

-for the Brute family.

0:15:300:15:33

-Would their success continue?

0:15:350:15:37

-Brutus Wager Jager took

-the Baby Beef Steer Championship.

0:15:370:15:42

-This is the Baby Beef

-Supreme Championship.

0:15:450:15:49

-The heifer and the steer.

0:15:490:15:51

-They are owned by the same man.

0:15:510:15:52

-They are owned by the same man.

-

-Credit to him.

0:15:520:15:54

-It is.

0:15:540:15:55

-He has two very special animals.

0:15:560:15:59

-He's having a look.

0:16:080:16:10

-The heifer.

0:16:130:16:14

-He's done a proper job.

0:16:150:16:17

-Congratulations to the family

-for completing the grand slam...

0:16:180:16:22

-..with Brutus Cheeky Girl

-playing a starring role.

0:16:230:16:26

-I'm Joe Roberts, a Bala butcher.

0:16:310:16:33

-I've been butchering all my life.

0:16:340:16:36

-My father and his father

-were butchers.

0:16:370:16:39

-are in the business with me.

0:16:400:16:43

0:16:440:16:47

0:17:040:17:06

-I'm delighted to do it.

0:17:060:17:09

-I'll be judging what I like

0:17:100:17:14

-When I go to the market,

-I always buy the best.

0:17:150:17:19

-I'll be doing the same

-at the Winter Fair.

0:17:190:17:23

-I'll pick what I think is the best.

0:17:230:17:27

-Joe's trained eye picked out

-Dafydd Lewis' Beltex lamb.

0:17:300:17:34

-It won

-the Single Carcass Championship.

0:17:340:17:38

-But what would it make

-in the big auction?

0:17:380:17:41

-It's busy here in the carcass hall.

0:17:450:17:47

-The lamb carcasses

-are being auctioned.

-that came sixth for 7 per kilo.

0:18:010:18:05

-I'm very happy with that price.

0:18:060:18:08

-I'm hoping for a good price

-with the champion.

0:18:090:18:12

-We've reached 580.

0:18:120:18:14

-It goes for 580...

0:18:220:18:24

-..to La Marina El Puerto in Penarth.

0:18:250:18:30

-What do you make of the price?

0:18:310:18:33

-Very good for a 25-kilo lamb.

0:18:330:18:35

-I'd get around 4 a kilo

-at the local abattoir.

0:18:350:18:39

-But, really,

-the rosette is important to me.

0:18:390:18:43

-Winning a competition

-with over 150 lambs here...

0:18:430:18:46

-..and to receive a tidy price,

-I'm very happy.

0:18:460:18:50

-Being asked to judge the competition

-is the highlight of my job.

0:18:510:18:57

-It doesn't get any better.

-It's a real buzz. Fantastic.

0:18:570:19:02

-Every carcass on show

-was spot on, good ones.

0:19:030:19:06

-I had to pick the best ones.

-That was a real honour.

0:19:070:19:11

-Joe Roberts' champion pair

-of carcasses sold for 300 apiece.

0:19:130:19:18

-In the poultry section...

0:19:260:19:27

-..there were many proud winners

-and birds of all shapes and colours.

0:19:270:19:32

-The Winter Fair's main purpose is

-to be the shop window for our goods.

0:20:010:20:06

-Gwynne Davies

-the sheep section's chief steward...

0:20:070:20:10

-..is well aware of that.

0:20:100:20:12

-The lambs come in pairs

-and are weighed over there.

0:20:130:20:16

-They are put into weight classes.

0:20:160:20:18

-Their number and weight are shown

-for all to see.

0:20:180:20:23

-In the summer, they are judged

-on the merits of their breed.

0:20:230:20:27

-Here, we're looking for the store

-lambs a butcher wants in his shop.

0:20:280:20:34

-We have a feast ahead of us

-in the Butchers' Weight section.

0:20:380:20:42

-Rhodri, you're a butcher with two

-shops. How is the standard today?

0:20:420:20:47

-They are ideal.

0:20:480:20:50

-It's exactly what we want to see

-on the shop counter.

0:20:510:20:54

-Things are moving very quickly.

0:20:540:20:57

-Yes, there are four

-excellent pairs in the ring.

0:20:580:21:03

-Those back legs

-really make your mouth water...

0:21:030:21:06

-..when you think of them

-on a Sunday dinner plate.

0:21:060:21:09

-It's a tough job for the judge

-to choose a winner.

0:21:100:21:15

-Rhodri, where's your money?

0:21:160:21:18

-I favour Dafydd's pair.

0:21:190:21:22

-Dafydd Lewis, Pentwyn.

0:21:220:21:24

-How about you, Malcolm?

0:21:240:21:26

-I think it will be close

-between Dafydd and Slade.

0:21:260:21:31

-They are two superb pairs.

0:21:310:21:33

-The judge is deciding.

0:21:340:21:35

-He has the ribbons in his hand.

0:21:360:21:38

-Andrew Atkinson from Harrogate

-is delivering his adjudication.

0:21:400:21:44

-He has picked Robin Slade!

0:21:450:21:47

-It might be cold outside but

-it's hotting up in the Sheep Ring.

0:21:530:21:58

-This is the Continental

-Breed Championship.

0:21:580:22:02

-Malcolm, there's lots of meat here!

0:22:020:22:04

-Malcolm, there's lots of meat here!

-

-An embarrassment of meat.

0:22:040:22:07

-They really do look splendid.

0:22:090:22:11

-He has four tremendous pairs

-in front of him.

0:22:120:22:16

-He's got a real headache here.

0:22:160:22:18

-These won the Texel class and

-are owned by Steve and Sara Gibbons.

0:22:190:22:24

-They won the Supreme Championship

-last year with their Texels.

0:22:240:22:28

-That doesn't surprise me.

-They're a wonderful pair.

0:22:290:22:32

-These are a real danger in this

-section and for the main prize.

0:22:320:22:36

-They could go all the way.

0:22:360:22:37

-They'll be quaking in their boots

-as the judge decides.

0:22:380:22:41

-Steve and Sara Gibbons.

0:22:410:22:43

-They fully deserve to win.

0:22:430:22:46

-They look incredible.

0:22:460:22:48

-They really are a picture.

-Welcome back to the final day

-of the Winter Fair.

0:23:070:23:10

-Thousands of people enjoyed a lovely

-winter's day here at Llanelwedd.

0:23:100:23:14

-Some had travelled a long way...

0:23:140:23:17

-..but there were none prouder

-or more excited...

0:23:170:23:20

-..than the beef section judge,

-Bryn Lloyd, and his army of fans.

0:23:200:23:24

-I'm Bryn Lloyd, Garthiaen,

-Llandrillo. I farm with my brother.

0:23:280:23:32

-We keep sheep and cattle.

0:23:330:23:35

-Half our sheep are Welsh Mountain,

-the other half are Texel cross.

0:23:360:23:40

-We have Limousin

-and Limousin-cross cattle.

0:23:400:23:43

-We are used to competing

-at the Fair.

0:23:480:23:50

-I think my first outing was

-to the second Fair that was held.

0:23:510:23:55

-We've missed one or two years since,

-but not many.

0:23:550:23:58

-We've been competing

-at the Royal Welsh since 1978.

0:23:580:24:01

-I was a 13-year-old boy and

-I've been quite successful there.

0:24:020:24:07

-We had the Commercial Champion at

-the Royal Welsh this year with Beca.

0:24:080:24:12

-I was very pleased.

0:24:120:24:14

-This is my first outing

-as a judge at the Fair.

0:24:160:24:19

-It's the biggest honour

-I've ever been given.

0:24:190:24:22

-I can't imagine any higher accolade

-in my field.

0:24:220:24:28

-Here's the bus from Llandrillo

-full of supporters.

0:24:340:24:38

-They head straight for the cattle

-ring to support their local hero.

0:24:380:24:43

-Here we are.

-The Championships start here.

0:24:440:24:47

-The Heifer Championship is first.

0:24:470:24:50

-They're wandering around, Dai.

0:24:530:24:55

-I think they're about

-to hit one out.

0:24:550:24:57

-I like this heifer Sellers has,

-the black one.

0:24:580:25:01

-She's a good heifer.

0:25:010:25:02

-The pedigree Lim heifer owned

-by Elfed Williams is a danger too.

0:25:020:25:07

-I think it's between those two.

0:25:070:25:10

-They're a good pair.

0:25:100:25:12

-Let's see.

0:25:130:25:14

-Let's see.

-

-They're in sync there.

0:25:140:25:16

-They're walking together.

0:25:160:25:18

-They seem to be in agreement

-at the moment.

0:25:180:25:20

-There she is!

0:25:220:25:23

-Sellers' heifer has taken it.

0:25:240:25:26

-I liked her when she won her class.

0:25:270:25:29

-Congratulations!

0:25:310:25:32

-We've had the Heifer Championship.

0:25:340:25:36

-This is the Steer Championship.

0:25:370:25:39

-It's a feast here, Dai. The judges

-are enjoying themselves too.

0:25:390:25:43

-That's a good sign.

0:25:430:25:45

-Bryn adjudicated the steers.

0:25:460:25:49

-We talked about the power

-in the Champion heifer.

0:25:490:25:52

-That is true.

0:25:520:25:54

-There are two very, very powerful

-steers in this class.

0:25:550:25:58

-I'd be shocked if it wasn't one of

-those. I'd prefer the black steer.

0:25:590:26:04

-Well, we are Welsh after all!

0:26:040:26:06

-I think we can safely say,

-those two will have a fair shout.

0:26:060:26:10

-But they are all quality steers.

0:26:110:26:13

-But they are all quality steers.

-

-They are good steers.

0:26:130:26:14

-The native breeds nearer to us

-are worth a look too.

0:26:150:26:18

-Yes, they're full of meat...

0:26:180:26:22

-Yes, they're full of meat...

-

-Here it is!

0:26:220:26:23

-The Scots have taken it.

0:26:230:26:25

-That's very special.

0:26:290:26:31

-Who's going to be the Supreme

-Champion of Cattle this year?

0:26:340:26:38

-It's between the steer and heifer.

0:26:380:26:40

-Berwyn, as a competitor here

-and a producer of quality stock...

0:26:400:26:45

-..what do you have to say

-about these two?

0:26:460:26:50

-Both of these

-are incredible animals.

0:26:500:26:53

-The heifer is so sweet and correct.

-She has no faults.

0:26:530:26:57

-The steer has a little more power.

0:26:580:27:00

-There's some excitement here.

-The steer has taken it!

0:27:000:27:04

-The Limousin steer.

0:27:050:27:07

-First prize goes to Scotland.

0:27:070:27:09

-It's on its way to Aberdeen.

0:27:090:27:11

-Bryn, it was great seeing you at

-work. You seemed to be enjoying it.

0:27:130:27:18

-Yes, I enjoyed it very much.

0:27:180:27:20

-Having good cattle in front of you

-makes it an easy job, Dai.

0:27:220:27:26

-I really enjoyed it.

0:27:260:27:28

-It was a competition at the end

-between the steer from Scotland...

0:27:280:27:32

-..and the black heifer.

0:27:320:27:33

-It was a special steer.

0:27:340:27:35

-It was a special steer.

-

-One of the best I've ever seen.

0:27:350:27:37

-It was incredibly correct.

0:27:370:27:39

-It was very meaty too.

0:27:400:27:41

-It had a smart head too.

0:27:420:27:43

-I'm joined by Lowri and Bryn Thomas

-on the Gwella stand.

0:27:490:27:53

-It's a striking name.

0:27:530:27:55

-You farm in Aberystwyth.

-Can I try your lamb?

0:27:560:27:58

-Which one is the lamb?

0:27:590:28:01

-That one in the front is lamb,

-it's got Nepalese spice on it.

0:28:020:28:08

-Nepalese spice?

0:28:080:28:11

-Yes, Nepali spices.

0:28:110:28:12

-Was that you, Bryn?

0:28:120:28:13

-Was that you, Bryn?

-

-Yes.

0:28:130:28:14

-You're a spicy guy.

0:28:140:28:15

-You'll see later on!

0:28:160:28:18

-Oh! That's wonderful.

0:28:200:28:22

-It's different, isn't it?

0:28:230:28:24

-It's different, isn't it?

-

-It's wonderful.

0:28:240:28:26

-What's the response like?

0:28:260:28:28

-What's the response like?

-

-It's been very good.

0:28:280:28:29

-Everyone who tries it likes it.

0:28:290:28:31

-I can certainly second that.

0:28:320:28:33

-Lovely to meet you.

0:28:340:28:35

-Lovely to meet you.

-

-And you.

0:28:350:28:36

-I'm at the Caws Cenarth stand

-with Rhys. How's it going?

0:28:410:28:45

-It's going quite well.

0:28:450:28:47

-These are well-established.

-They're very popular.

0:28:470:28:50

-Do they still sell well?

0:28:500:28:52

-Yes. There's no need to change

-something that works.

0:28:520:28:55

-Which are the favourites?

0:28:550:28:57

-I like the Caws Cryf.

-Cennin Cenarth is good too.

0:28:570:29:00

-That one is called Tomi Twym.

0:29:010:29:03

-There's a nice chilli kick

-at the end.

0:29:070:29:09

-What's here?

0:29:090:29:10

-This is Golden Cenarth...

0:29:110:29:12

-..Supreme Champion

-at the British Cheese awards.

0:29:120:29:15

-You can melt it in the oven,

-it's quite easy. Everyone likes it.

0:29:150:29:19

-It's very nice.

0:29:190:29:21

-How long has it been in the oven?

0:29:210:29:23

-I don't think it's had enough time.

-It's had around 15 minutes.

0:29:230:29:27

-Can you add things to it?

0:29:290:29:31

-Anything you want.

-Garlic or a bit of honey.

0:29:310:29:35

-People like it just as it is.

0:29:350:29:38

-You take the plastic off

-and stick it in the oven.

0:29:390:29:41

-No hassle.

0:29:420:29:43

-How long did you cook it?

0:29:430:29:44

-That's been ten minutes.

-It needs another ten.

0:29:450:29:47

-Go from there.

0:29:480:29:49

-Oh, yes, it's soft.

0:29:490:29:51

-Oh, dear, look at that!

0:29:510:29:52

-The Pairs Championship

-is going on in the pig building.

0:29:590:30:03

-The judge has been busy.

0:30:030:30:06

-Chief Steward Phil Fowlie joins me.

0:30:060:30:08

-You have kept Welsh pigs

-for 40 years.

0:30:080:30:10

-I know you've been chatting with

-the judge. How is he getting on?

0:30:110:30:14

-I've got to know him

-over the past two days.

0:30:150:30:17

-He's sticking to his theme

-of selecting the meaty animals.

0:30:180:30:21

-I'm sure

-that he's made his decision.

0:30:220:30:25

-He has pulled out

-every animal which is full of meat.

0:30:250:30:30

-I know we have different breeds...

0:30:300:30:33

-..but he is a butcher...

0:30:330:30:36

-..and a market-leader

-around the country.

0:30:360:30:42

-In his adjudication, he is praising

-those who raise these animals.

0:30:420:30:47

-This is not two days' work.

0:30:470:30:50

-This is the result of years of work.

0:30:500:30:53

-The Welsh pig has won.

0:30:540:30:57

-Huw and Ela Roberts, Ffridd Farm,

-Llithfaen, have taken the prize.

0:30:580:31:03

-They won the pairs in 2014

-and the singles last year.

0:31:030:31:08

-They've won the pairs

-again this year.

0:31:090:31:11

-Congratulations to them.

0:31:110:31:13

-Huw and Ela won the pairs.

0:31:130:31:15

-What about the Singles Championship?

0:31:150:31:19

-We're here in the pig enclosure

-with the Singles Championship.

0:31:200:31:25

-Phil Fowlie, how's it looking?

0:31:260:31:28

-Phil Fowlie, how's it looking?

-

-Things look very promising.

0:31:280:31:30

-He's sticking to his theme

-of selecting the meaty animals.

0:31:300:31:36

-He's explaining to the crowd now.

0:31:360:31:39

-Here's an exclusive for you.

-A Welsh pig is taking the prize.

0:31:390:31:43

-The Large Black pig will be reserve.

0:31:440:31:47

-Great news for Eifiona of Penlan

-Farm, Trefilan, Talsarn, Lampeter.

0:31:480:31:54

-It's her first time here.

0:31:540:31:56

-They have some excellent pigs

-on the farm.

0:31:560:31:59

-You couldn't ask for much better.

0:32:000:32:02

-After the fierce competition, the

-drama of the auction was up next.

0:32:030:32:08

-The Singles Champion,

-owned by the Penlan family...

0:32:080:32:12

-..was first under the hammer.

0:32:120:32:14

-The price was only going one way.

0:32:140:32:17

-The price has gone up.

0:32:180:32:21

-Rob Rattray

-is a butcher from Aberystwyth.

0:32:210:32:24

-Rob buys pigs from Brynle

-every week.

0:32:240:32:28

-220 to Rob Rattray.

0:32:330:32:36

-After the Singles Champion,

-the Pairs were up next...

0:32:360:32:40

-..owned by Huw and Ela Roberts.

0:32:400:32:42

-Once again it was a decent price.

0:32:430:32:46

-They have gone for 400 each.

0:32:490:32:54

-Phil Fowlie, the Chief Steward,

-has bought the pair...

0:32:550:32:59

-..on behalf of the

-Llanfairpwll butcher, Tom Hughes.

0:32:590:33:03

-It's a lot more than market value.

0:33:030:33:06

-You pay

-because this is the very best.

0:33:060:33:08

-You can display this

-to your customers in the shop.

0:33:090:33:12

-You can show them

-that you always have the best meat.

0:33:120:33:15

-He won't get the money back.

0:33:150:33:17

-It's a way of promoting his shop

-more than anything else.

0:33:170:33:22

-My name is Marian Evans

-and I live in Radyr in Cardiff.

0:33:300:33:34

-I'm originally from North Wales.

0:33:340:33:36

-I'm here as a judge for the two days

-for Merched Y Wawr and the WI.

0:33:370:33:40

-For Merched Y Wawr, I was judging...

0:33:420:33:45

-..the owl competition, buntings

-and Dathlu'r Aur (Celebrating gold).

0:33:450:33:50

-There were 70 owls

-to judge this morning...

0:33:500:33:54

-..of all shapes and sizes.

0:33:550:33:57

-The buntings were close to 50

-in number - all different.

0:33:580:34:02

-There were 15 to 20 entries

-in the category on celebrating gold.

0:34:020:34:06

-The standard was incredible.

0:34:060:34:09

-You can have a lovely little owl

-made from wool.

0:34:100:34:14

-The owl that eventually won

-was exceptional.

0:34:150:34:17

-I really enjoy the process.

0:34:180:34:21

-I appreciate people's ability...

0:34:210:34:25

-..to create something

-simple or complicated.

0:34:250:34:28

-The Celebrating Gold category

-had some very complex entries.

0:34:280:34:32

-They were very, very good.

0:34:320:34:34

-We're all agreed

-that the standard rises every year.

0:34:390:34:42

-We get more entries for the

-Winter Fair than the Royal Welsh.

-who grew up with Welsh Cobs.

0:35:160:35:21

-I'll be judging all the sections

-and the overall Welsh Champion.

0:35:220:35:27

0:35:430:35:49

-This is a very special championship.

0:35:490:35:52

-I'm lucky enough to have bred horses

-for every one of these sections.

0:35:520:35:58

-It'll be a tough task

-for Dafydd to sort them out.

0:35:590:36:03

-The numbers competing here this year

-have been huge.

0:36:030:36:08

-All the Welsh Section winners...

0:36:080:36:11

-..are out in the ring waiting

-to see who is the overall champion.

-is speaking to the steward.

0:36:200:36:24

-Who wins it?

0:36:250:36:26

-This is a nervous time

-for the competitors...

0:36:280:36:32

-..because the result is imminent.

0:36:320:36:35

0:36:360:36:38

0:37:030:37:06

-..to have claimed the

-Welsh horse championship in 2016.

0:37:060:37:12

-To be honest, I was quite nervous

-in that main ring.

0:37:140:37:17

-The quality in front of me

-was incredible.

0:37:170:37:20

-It was wonderful

-to see quality horses...

0:37:200:37:23

-..representing the Welsh breeds

-at their best.

0:37:230:37:26

-The highlight of all the competing

-here in the horse ring this week.

0:37:270:37:32

-The Supreme Championship.

0:37:320:37:35

-The judge is Mr Aled James.

0:37:350:37:37

-He lives in Llantwit Major

-in the Vale of Glamorgan.

0:37:380:37:43

-He started as a steward at

-the Royal Welsh some 40 years ago.

0:37:440:37:49

-Do you want to hazard a shilling?

0:37:520:37:56

-That's your job, Mr Lloyd.

0:37:560:37:58

-Where does your money go?

0:37:580:38:00

-They are all very tidy, fair play.

-Great examples of their sections.

0:38:010:38:06

-Everybody is facing the front.

0:38:110:38:13

-It looks like

-the decision has been made.

0:38:130:38:16

-Who will take it?

0:38:170:38:19

-It's the big moment.

0:38:210:38:23

-The cob takes it. Jonathan Batt

-with Abergavenny Fashion.

0:38:240:38:27

-That's the Supreme Champion

-of Horses here at the Winter Fair.

0:38:280:38:33

-The Reserve Championship

-goes to the Section B.

0:38:330:38:36

-Colin Tibbey is showing Thistledown

-Cadog on behalf of Mr S Anderson.

0:38:360:38:41

-Here's the Supreme Champion

-of Horses.

0:38:420:38:44

-Abergavenny Fashion

-steps out with Jonathan Batt.

0:38:450:38:48

-Congratulations to them all.

0:38:480:38:50

-After an exciting morning

-crowning section champions...

0:39:020:39:06

-..which pair

-will be the Champion of Champions?

0:39:060:39:09

-This is the highlight

-of the sheep ring.

0:39:140:39:18

-The Supreme Championship.

0:39:180:39:20

-After all the washing,

-scrubbing and trimming...

0:39:210:39:24

-..this is the ultimate aim of most

-exhibitors - The Pairs Championship.

0:39:240:39:29

-John Eirian, those still in

-must be quaking in their boots.

0:39:290:39:33

-They've worked hard to get here.

0:39:330:39:36

-This is the highlight.

0:39:360:39:38

-It's a difficult class.

0:39:390:39:41

-The Butchers' Weight class

-normally dominates this competition.

0:39:420:39:47

-Robin Slade represents that class.

0:39:470:39:50

-Getting out of that section

-as champion or reserve champion...

0:39:500:39:56

-..is an honour in itself.

0:39:560:39:59

-It's quite a challenge to emerge

-from that class and then have to...

0:39:590:40:04

-..take on the pure-bred lambs

-for the Supreme Championship.

0:40:040:40:08

-I think you are favouring

-the two pairs in the middle.

0:40:080:40:11

-The ones owned by Robin Slade...

0:40:110:40:14

-..and the pure continental champions

-owned by S&S Gibbons from Brecon.

0:40:140:40:19

-It's Wales versus England.

0:40:190:40:21

-The judge keeps going back to feel

-the lamb held by Robin Slade.

0:40:210:40:26

-One of the Butchers' Weight lambs.

0:40:270:40:30

-He may be doubting

-that the quality of that lamb...

0:40:300:40:33

-..isn't quite as good as the lamb

-being held by Robin's son.

0:40:330:40:37

-They have to match perfectly.

0:40:370:40:40

-The lambs have to be identical.

0:40:400:40:42

-The same width and length and with

-the same amount of meat on them...

0:40:420:40:48

-..and the same shape.

0:40:480:40:49

-It's very tough

-to get two well-balanced lambs.

0:40:500:40:55

-He's sharing his thoughts

-with the crowd.

0:40:560:40:59

-He's thanking them for the

-honour of judging. Let's hear him.

0:41:000:41:03

-Robin Slade.

0:41:050:41:06

-Oh, John Eirian, very close!

0:41:060:41:09

-He's decided that they're a pair...

0:41:090:41:12

-..and that they're worthy

-of the Supreme Championship.

0:41:120:41:16

-Robin Slade from Hereford

-is the winner.

0:41:160:41:20

-Third time for you to win this.

0:41:200:41:22

-Yes, magic. After a long spell

-but there we are. We're back again.

0:41:220:41:26

-What is so special

-about the Welsh Winter Fair?

0:41:260:41:29

-It's right next door to us.

0:41:290:41:32

-It is the premier show

-in the country.

0:41:320:41:35

-There's no doubt about that.

0:41:350:41:37

-Just look at the quality of

-the stock and the numbers involved.

0:41:370:41:42

-To win this one,

-to follow my agri exhibition win...

0:41:420:41:48

-..is magic.

0:41:480:41:50

-It was the year for you.

0:41:500:41:52

-Thank you.

0:41:520:41:52

-Thank you.

-

-Many congratulations.

0:41:520:41:55

-Many thanks to you.

0:41:550:41:58

-The Winter Fair is different to

-auctions you see in a usual market.

0:42:080:42:13

-This is more of an event.

0:42:130:42:15

-As it's a Christmas fair...

0:42:150:42:19

-..the seasonal feel

-adds to the atmosphere as a whole.

0:42:190:42:23

-The company

-working for us now is McCartneys.

0:42:240:42:27

-McCartneys have sold with us now

-for seven years.

0:42:280:42:31

-It's quite a thing to take on.

0:42:310:42:34

-Registering the animals,

-weighing them...

0:42:340:42:37

-..and checking the information

-is correct for Tuesday's auction.

0:42:370:42:42

-A lot of work

-goes on behind the scenes.

0:42:420:42:45

-A lot of money changes hands...

0:42:450:42:47

-..over 200,000 in all,

-when you consider the cattle...

0:42:470:42:50

-..the lambs, the Butchers' Weight,

-the poultry and the pigs.

0:42:500:42:54

-They work very professionally.

0:42:550:42:56

-The competitions are over and

-as you can see, the ring is packed.

0:42:570:43:00

-It's time for the Champions auction.

0:43:010:43:03

-Endaf Jones joins me

-to talk us through the auction.

0:43:040:43:07

0:43:070:43:09

-The champions are in the ring.

0:43:090:43:13

-I'm hoping it will go well.

0:43:130:43:15

-Last year's highest price

-was 1,500.

0:43:150:43:20

-We'll see what happens this year.

0:43:200:43:22

-They're a good pair, aren't they?

0:43:230:43:25

-They're a good pair, aren't they?

-

-Yes, they really are.

0:43:250:43:26

-They're a very good pair.

0:43:270:43:29

-They've started the bidding

-with 300.

0:43:300:43:32

-We're at 400.

0:43:340:43:35

-It's going up quickly.

0:43:360:43:37

-They are exactly

-what a butcher would want.

0:43:380:43:40

-It's exactly what they want.

0:43:400:43:42

-The meat is in all the right places.

0:43:430:43:44

-The meat is in all the right places.

-

-Yes, it is.

0:43:440:43:45

-is working hard.

0:43:460:43:50

0:43:500:43:53

-He's trying to get a few more bids.

-

-He is working very hard.

0:43:530:43:55

-We're up to 600 now.

0:43:560:43:57

-Those are two excellent ewe lambs.

0:44:010:44:04

-It's at 600.

0:44:040:44:05

-Do you see them going for more?

0:44:050:44:07

-I'm not sure. I hope so.

0:44:080:44:10

-They look worth it.

0:44:100:44:12

-The current market value is

-3.80 per kilo. These are special.

0:44:120:44:18

-Butchers want prizes in their

-shop windows at this time of year.

0:44:180:44:23

-They've gone.

0:44:230:44:25

-600 was the final price.

0:44:260:44:29

-Very high prices

-have been recorded at the Fair.

0:44:330:44:36

-The record in the cattle section was

-for a steer called Jonsi in 2007.

0:44:360:44:41

-He fetched 12,500.

0:44:420:44:43

-At 12,500.

0:44:430:44:46

-Well done!

0:44:470:44:49

-It almost brought

-a tear to your eye.

0:44:490:44:53

-It was a brilliant atmosphere.

0:44:530:44:56

-You don't get

-that sort of atmosphere very often.

0:44:560:45:00

-It was one of the best feelings

-I've ever had.

0:45:000:45:03

-When Tuesday afternoon comes,

-the grandstand will be full.

0:45:040:45:08

-The balcony will be

-three or four deep with people.

0:45:090:45:11

-You feel the buzz and the

-electric atmosphere increasing...

0:45:120:45:15

-..the closer you get to the auction.

0:45:150:45:18

-The auctioneer

-is in the middle of it all.

0:45:180:45:22

-When the Tuesday afternoon comes,

-you feel the thrill and the buzz.

0:45:220:45:26

-another successful Winter Fair.

0:45:520:45:56

0:45:560:45:59

0:46:400:46:44

0:46:510:46:56

-..when exhibiting

-in the Sport Horses section.

0:46:560:46:59

-It's one of my personal highlights

-every year.

0:46:590:47:02

-It's a chance to meet friends...

0:47:020:47:04

-passion and commitment...

0:47:050:47:08
