What is really galling is that it is totally unnecessary, slurry sprayed onto chopped straw (bedding) and composted produces a fantastic soil conditioner and feed, much better for the land than spraying slurry which gets washed out and suffocates soil bacteria. Guess the farmers prefer an easy way to dispose of it rather than the best way.

I am disgusted and embarrassed to come from a farming background. My sympathies with the Teifi anglers

For too long now , Farmers think that they can do what they like with the countryside.
How spreading massive amounts of SH1T ( Slurry is too nice a word ) on the land is deemed acceptable in this age is beyond me.
Sincere sympathies to the anglers who have been affected by this.
...and on it goes

No, but quite clearly it seems you have a limited grasp of written English!

I suggest you read my post again and if you're still struggling get a twelve year old to explain

Qetu,
I think laughing cicadu and yourself are agreeing but somehow managing to disagree about agreeing. I think we all will agree that you two should stop disagreeing about agreeing and agree to agree.

Or at least agree to disagree.

This is a disgusting incident and I hope the offender is prosecuted and punished to the full extent of the law for such wanton destruction of a pristine river.

We might be able to make a difference for the future - the Welsh Government is currently consulting on extending Nitrate Vulnerable Zones in Wales. Click on the link below for details:

https://blog.fishtec.co.uk/help-save...farm-pollution

There are two options under consideration, option 2 would protect the whole of Wales. You can sign a document and email to the Welsh government - the more people that do this, more chance of option 2 going ahead. Hopefully, this would help protect Welsh rivers from future slurry spills like this. DEADLINE IS 23rd December.

Thanks for your help!
