This article reports that more than 1000 livestock farmers across north Wales are without a fallen stock service after trading standards officers closed a storage plant near Wrexham. The collection center at Marchwiel, operated by Clutton Agricultural, was closed by Wrexham trading standards after the owner of a neighboring premises complained about the smell. The suspension of a fallen stock service in north Wales will frustrate farmers in the region after problems in finding a collector to serve the area.
