Royal Welsh Show: 'Big cost' for young to start farming

The farming industry in Wales risks becoming "stagnant" unless more is done to encourage the younger generation, a union has said.

The Farmers' Union of Wales has urged the Welsh Government to introduce an action plan for young farmers.

Rural Affairs Secretary Lesley Griffiths said young farmers were a priority.
