Generation 2015 profiles: Carwyn James

I'm a 22-year-old young farmer born and raised in Pembrokeshire. I work as a ruminant nutritionist with an animal feeds company, which means I know exactly how to feed cows and deal with stubborn customers.

I also help out at home on the family beef and sheep farm with my mother and brother. These are two jobs that complement each other well.

Agriculture is in the blood and my family has worked our 300-acre farm for generations; though it's become more and more difficult to earn a decent living in recent times.

Politics play an important role in my work and my personal life; I grew up as a young carer for my poorly mother, so we rely heavily on services offered by the NHS. We've had to fight in the last few years for funding to look after Mam to enable myself and my brother Aled to lead independent lives of our own.
