The 29-year-old has reached out to farmers who may be in a position to help.
A Young Farmer in desperate need of winter herd accommodation has reached out to the community to save his stock from auction.
James Davies, 29, has been forced out of his current Pembrokeshire holding due to an unforeseen change of circumstances for the farm’s owner – but if no alternative accommodation is found for his 170 cows and in-calf heifers and 100 beef cattle, he could be forced to sell up.
But the herd has been complicated by its current TB status and is currently subject to movement restrictions.
Mr Davies said: “We have got a test on November 5 and are hoping to go clear.
“It is my understanding that the cattle can be moved to winter housing subject to a movement licence, APHA veterinary risk assessment and if no other cattle are present on the farm.
“Everything I have done to get to this point has been a leap of faith and I do not want to give up now.
“I want to carry on milking.”
Mr Davies, who was brought up on a dairy farm in New Quay, Ceredigion, relocated his herd from Cornwall earlier in the year and has since been milking in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.
He is being supported through Farming Connect’s Venture programme, but said he was ‘running out of options’ to find a farmer match.
Lilwen Joynson, a Farming Connect mentor, said: “James’ determination to get through his current crisis, against all odds is inspirational and his work ethic and commitment to succeed should be admired.”
