Derek Lee Adamson appeared before Wrexham Magistrates recently and was found guilty and jailed following a successful prosecution by Wrexham’s Animal Welfare Team.
The court heard that as a result of his neglect two calves died and others were not cared for adequately.
The charges included failing to :
care for ill or injured farm animals; isolate sick or injured animals; feed a proper diet and adequate water to animals; provide clean animal housing and equipment and failing to ensure proper certification was in place.
Mr Adamson was jailed for 48 weeks, ordered to pay costs and a victim surcharge and was disqualified from keeping animals for 20 years.
Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, said:
“This is an excellent result for the team following the wholly inadequate care of animals in his care and causing unnecessary suffering.
“Animal welfare is a huge responsibility and this custodial sentence shows the severity of the offences in this case.”
