The service will provide short packages on the latest issues affecting the agricultural industry.

S4C will also provide even more farming and countryside coverage in peak-viewing times, with S4C’s Ffermio series now staying on air until mid July before taking a summer break.

Ffermio, broadcast on Monday evenings at 8.25pm and presented by Iola Wyn, Daloni Metcalfe, Alun Elidyr and Mererid Wigley, takes a weekly look at all matters rural in Wales and beyond. S4C is also planning to extend Ffermio’s schedule over the next three years.

Mererid Wigley, Ffermio Producer and Telesgôp’s Editor of Agricultural Content, said: “We’re ready for the challenge of providing a current and dynamic farming bulletin on our ffermio.tv website. At Telesgôp, we specialise in internet broadcasting and we will ensure that the Bwletin Ffermio, alongside Ffermio, continues to develop into a vital and interactive source of information for farmers.”

S4C’s Director of Commissioning, Rhian Gibson added, “S4C has succeeded in positioning itself as a main provider of rural programmes, and content within this area plays a prominent part in the schedule. The Ffermio series and the new on-line farming bulletin emphasises this commitment.
