Botulism deaths of cattle at Carmarthenshire farm 'great loss'

The death of at least 70 cattle following an outbreak of botulism is a "great loss", according to a farming journalist.

Dei Tomos said each cow at the Carmarthenshire farm would be worth up to £2,000 each.

It is believed the disease came from the carcass of a rotting animal in the grass silage the cattle at Cwrt Malle Farm were being fed.

The super dairy in Llangynog, near Carmarthen, houses around 2,000 cattle.
