Anna also discusses the impact the possible closure of North Wales' biggest abattoir might have on the Welsh lamb industry. Welsh Country Foods is consulting on making its 350 staff redundant after losing a contract to supply ASDA. The abattoir is owned by Vion Foods which is pulling out of the UK.
