Rustlers steal £16,000 worth of cattle from Carmarthenshire farm

Farmers  across Wales are being warned to watch out for cattle thieves following the disappearance of stock worth £16,000 in Carmarthenshire.

Teifion and Liz Williams, of Bronallt Farm, Llangadog, reported the theft of a four-month-old calf, three in-calf heifers and 11 suckler cows to Dyfed Powys Police on Friday after discovering the cattle had gone missing from the field they were grazing.

 

The animals are a mixture of British Blue, Hereford and Limousins.


David Waters, the Farmers Union of Wales county executive officer, in Carmarthen, is urging all farmers to take note of anything suspicious they may see happening in the countryside and report it to their local rural crime officer immediately.


“As the days are getting shorter, some may fancy their chances and steal livestock and farm machinery, which has devastating consequences for farm businesses and extremely stressful for the families.”


He is urging farmers to enrol in the Farm Watch Scheme and the OWL system, under which any reports of suspicious vehicles or persons can be reported and forwarded to other members of Farm Watch.


“It is only by uniting and co-operating that the whole farming community can combat such farm thefts,” he added.


Anyone who has information about the theft of the cattle should contact PC Gareth Thomas (PC711), providing case number AA0/0711/29/09/2016/01/C as a reference.
