Rural Wales has been waiting since June last year for a decision from the Environment Minister on this policy and have now been told that the Welsh Government will be looking to introduce a vaccination programme instead.

Once again, the Welsh Government has let down farmers across Pembrokeshire and sadly, they will have to pay the price of this damning decision."
