The article reports on the efforts of National Farmers Union (NFU) Cymru to stave off plans to pass Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSE) fallen stock costs, running into millions of pounds, on to the Welsh livestock industry. Accordingly, the organisation wants rural affairs minister Elin Jones to make a move on the cost-sharing agenda. It says Jones had already warned the industry that the Assembly would not be able to pick up the cost because its resources were committed to tuberculosis (TB).
