Business of Farming talks in Llandrindod Wells to help industry

Farmers' leaders say they hope to have frank discussions with ministers later about "huge problems" facing the industry.

Both parties meet on Thursday for Wales' first annual farming conference in Llandrindod Wells, Powys.

First Minister Carwyn Jones said he wanted to continue to work with farmers to help the industry to flourish.

Emyr Jones, president of the Farmers Union of Wales (FUW), said farmers were passionate about producing food and caring for the environment but they faced a list of problems and needed more government help.

He spoke to Bethan Rhys Roberts on BBC Radio Wales.
