Woman Farmer of the Year

Three farmers from Mid and North Wales have been shortlisted for this year's Woman Farmer of the Year title.

They are Lesley Wickham of Llanafan Fawr near Builth Wells, Julie Davies of Crai, Brecon, and Eleri Wyn Williams of Tywyn.

The winner will be presented with the NFU Cymru/NatWest trophy and a cash prize of £500 at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair later this month.

Now in its tenth year, the competition aims to celebrate the contribution that women make to Welsh farming. Previous winners have gone on to hold key roles in the industry and win other awards.

Lesley Wickham of Cwmchwe- fru Farm, Llanafan Fawr, specialises in coloured sheep, pedigree Dexter cattle and goats.
