British Family

Noah Adams talks to Jo Jones of Ditches Farm at Church Stoke in Montgomery in Wales about the devastating slaughter of her family's 228 pedigree dairy cows this week. Half of their herd of dairy cows came down with foot-and-mouth disease and because the virus is so contagious, all of the cows had to be killed, then burned. Her husband Winston and daughter Lottie are not just suffering economic loss, but more importantly, are emotionally distraught by the loss.
