Devoted to milk sector.

FEW people in Welsh dairying are unaware of Brian Walters, according to the judges of an FUW-HSBC award for outstanding services to the sector.

The Carmarthenshire milk producer, who recently retired from the FUW's presidential team, collected the award at last week's Welsh Dairy Show.

For more than 30 years he has campaigned tirelessly for the dairy industry as well as hosting Gelli Aur work experience students at his 500-acre near Carmarthen.

With wife Ann and two sons, Aled and Seimon, he runs 220 cows with 200 followers - some pedigree Ayrshires - on an autumn block calving system.

The family also keep 100 beef cattle and run a self-catering holiday unit.

David Waters, of FUW Carmarthen, said: "There are not many people who don't know Brian.

"He has given so much to the dairy industry."
