Farmers in Wales expecting cut in payments

Farmers face "radical change" over the financial support they receive to help them produce food, warns a minister.

Payments which come from the EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) are due to fall and farmers are predicting tough times ahead.

Natural Resources Minister Alun Davies who is to reveal the payments said subsidies "tend not to lead to innovation and lead to efficiency".

Farming unions say incomes will fall and prices of meat could go up.

BBC Wales environment correspondent Iolo ap Dafydd reports.
