More than 300 farmers in North Wales who lost stock in the Arctic weather turned out for a face-to-face meeting with Welsh Government Natural Resources and Food Minister, Mr Davies, with a small group demanding his resignation.
Around 20 farmers walked out after presenting the Minister with a letter calling for his resignation following his failure to provide compensation for the severe losses.
Mr Davies, however, insisted he had responded to concerns by relaxing the rules on burying carcases on-farm and donating £500,000 to farming charities to help with the emergency.
Talks were also being held with the EU to bring forward Single Farm Payments to help with cash-flow problems for those worst-affected and an urgent review of the medium and long term resilience of the industry against future incidents of severe weather was on-going.
Speaking after the meeting, a Welsh Government spokesman said: “The real story of last night’s meeting is that it was a well attended event dominated by rational and constructive discussion between the Minister and farmers. The handful of farmers who left the meeting early were in a tiny minority.”
