EU referendum: Views from over the farm fence in Wales

The EU agriculture commissioner has said that Welsh farmers have a "better deal" as part of Europe.

On a visit to Wales, Phil Hogan said subsidies provided from Brussels represent a "safety net income for the farmers of Wales which is appreciated".

Support for farmers accounts for 40% of the EU budget with £240m in direct payments to Welsh farmers in 2014.

UKIP said it was a "diminishing slice of a crumbling cake, paid in a dodgy currency".

BBC Wales environment correspondent Steffan Messenger spoke to two farmers with different views on Britain's membership.

Abi Reader, a dairy farmer with 180 cows in Wenvoe in the Vale of Glamorgan, wants Britain to remain.

Jacob Anthony, a sheep and cattle farmer from Bridgend, will vote for Britain to leave.
