Farmer banned from keeping sheep for life

A farmer has been banned from keeping sheep for life after he was found to be holding a number of dead and sick animals at his farm in Little Hereford.

 

62-year-old William Edward Hyde admitted to nine animal welfare offences at Hereford Magistrates court on Friday (October 14) after reportedly failing to provide suitable environments and causing unnecessary suffering.

 

Welfare officers found dead ewes, lambs without water and sheep in need of medical treatment during a visit to the Furlongs Farm in February earlier this year.

 

Subsequent visits to the farm highlighted no improvement and resulted in 218 seized sheep.

 

Councillor David Harlow said: “This is a serious case of animal suffering and the conditions at this farm were deplorable.

 

“The council will work with all livestock keepers to ensure best practice on farms but will not tolerate this kind of animal suffering, which may result in a ban from keeping animals.”

 

Mr Hyde was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £5,000 in compensation order.

 

He has been prohibited from keeping sheep after December 15.
