Organic farmer Mrs Elizabeth Rees elected President of the Welsh Black Cattle Society
25 July 2012
The Soil Association would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mrs Rees on her recent appointment.
Mrs. Elizabeth Rees who farms organically at Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd, Ruthin, Denbighshire was elected President of the Welsh Black Cattle Society at this year’s annual general meeting.
Beth, as she is known as by most people, and her husband, Tony, bought their first pedigree Welsh Black cow in 1984 and joined the Society in 1985 when their first pedigree calf was born. This was the beginning of the ‘Rhys’ herd. ‘It seemed the obvious choice when we were deciding which cattle to keep. It’s not just a coincidence that the Welsh Black is the only native breed of Wales. They have earned that accolade because they are the animal best suited to the climate, the terrain and the grassland of Wales, and we have never regretted that decision’ she said.
