A huge load of silage donated by West Wales farmers has just been delivered to a Somerset farm that suffered severe flooding recently.
The consignment was the first load of bales to be loaded at Carmarthen Market for Somerset and was taken to Batch Farm at Godney, near Wells, on a lorry supplied by hay and straw merchant Lyndon Jones, of Rhos, Llangeler, near Llandysul.
The operation was organised by Carmarthenshire animal portraits artist Miranda Bowen who is helping Farmers' Union of Wales Ceredigion county chairman Aled Rees coordinate deliveries to the West Country from West Wales.

Mr Rees said: "This latest consignment brings the loads that have left Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire so far to a total eight with another one being loaded this morning in Cardigan."
Last Saturday a load of fodder went to Somerset from the farm of FUW member Maelgwyn Davies of Panteryrod, Llwyncelyn, near Aberaeron, that he and fellow members in the Mydroilyn area donated.
Tomorrow (Thursday April 17) 40 bales of hay silage - donated by FUW member Lyn Thomas, Pantfeillionen, Horeb, Llandysul - are due to be delivered to Paul Lock's farm, Whitegate, at Stembridge, near Taunton, and plans are also being made to send more loads next week to farms in neighbouring Martock and Langport.
"We continue to receive pledges of forage so the whole operation is going well," said Mr Rees. "Hauliers are great too, making it easy to work with the farmers. It just shows what people can do when they pull together."
