Cornwall's Beef Crisis
4:16pm 8th May 2014
Beef farmers in Cornwall and Devon could have to cut their herds by twenty percent.
That is what campaigners reckon, who say they are struggling with dropping price levels and reduced profits.
There are almost one million cattle farmed for meat across the counties.
Martin Howlett is a beef farmer from Callington, he thinks some could be forced out of industry.
He said: "The biggest problem we're facing at the moment as we reach spring time is that as our cattle are beginning to be marketed we are seeing a massive drop in the price, this is now being reflected in the store market and the confidence is going out of the industry.
"Once someone decides to go out of beef production it takes a long time to get back into beef, or indeed if they ever will at all, and we have to remember that the West Country needs both cheap beef cattle and dairy cows to graze, and this could have a long term affect."4:16pm 8th May 2014
