Tributes have been paid to a farmer who died at a farm in the Pen y Banc area of Llandeilo on Friday, September 23.

It is understood that the man, named locally as Maldwyn Harries, was injured following an incident with a bull on Friday morning.

Emergency services were called to the property early on Friday, with the Welsh Ambulance Trust sending two ambulances and a paramedic in a rapid response car to the farm at 9.40pm.

Wales Air Ambulance was also at the scene and supported ambulance crews there.

Dyfed-Powys Police said that officers attended the farm on Friday morning following a report that a man had been injured.

“Sadly, a 58-year-old man passed away at the scene,” said a police spokesperson. “HM Coroner and The Health and Safety Executive have been advised.”

Local councillor Christoph Fischer, who lives in the Pen y Banc area said that he had met Maldwyn and his family at various local events and during canvassing at elections.

“Maldwyn was well respected and well liked,” he said. “The death has absolutely shellshocked the community and the entire neighbourhood feels deepest sympathy for the family.”

The Farmers Union of Wales said it sent its condolences to the family following the tragedy.

An ‘act of commemoration and remembrance’ for Mr Harries was held before a sheep sale on Monday, September 26.
