Datganiad gan yr Ymddiriedolwyr

Fel y gwyddoch, mae y ddwy aelod o staff wedi bod ar gyfnod seibiant ers dechrau y cyfnod clo. Oherwydd hyn rydym yn cydnabod pa mor anodd oedd cysylltu gyda’r Gymdeithas. Erbyn hyn mae y staff wedi dychwelyd i’w gwaith ar delerau ‘flexi-furlough’. Felly, gallwch gysylltu gyda naill ai Evelyn Jones neu Pat Thompson ar y rhifau ffôn arferol fel eu bod yn gallu ymdrin â’ch ymholiad yn ystod eu horiau gwaith.

Deallwn hefyd eich consyrn o gylch cofrestriadau sydd wedi eu derbyn ond heb eu prosesu. Nawr fod staff wedi dychwelyd i’w gwaith bydd prosesu y cofrestriadau hyn yn flaenoriaeth.

Byddem yn gwerthfawrogi petaech yn gallu rhoi gwybod i aelodau sydd heb fynediad i gyfryngau cymdeithasol o’r datblygiadau hyn.

Announcement from the Trustees

As you are aware, both members of staff were furloughed at the beginning of lockdown. Due to this we acknowledge that it has been very difficult to communicate with the Society. However, both members of staff have now returned to work on a flexi –furlough basis. Therefore, you will be able to contact either Evelyn Jones or Pat Thompson on the usual telephone numbers in order that they cn address your query during their working day.

We also understand concerns regarding registrations which have been submitted since March but have not been processed. Now that staff have returned to work processing these registrations will be a main priority.

We would appreciate your help in informing members that might not have access to social media of these developments.

Croeso / Welcome

As Wales' only native breed of cattle, the story of the Welsh Black is steeped in history.

For centuries these cattle have been prized posessions as they are equally at home in craggy uplands or lush lowland pastures.

This hardy breed provides high quality meat and milk.  It has much to offer modern farming systems with its ease of production and award winning succulent meat.

For over 100 years the Welsh Black Cattle Society has nurtured, promoted and sought to improve the breed - a job which is continuing...

Welsh Black Breed Objectives
