A farmer was convicted of three charges of causing unnecessary suffering to a cow at Armagh Magistrates Court yesterday (Friday, January 18th).

Maurice Foster (48) with an address at Farnaloy Road, Madden, Armagh was also convicted of one charge of failure to comply with an improvement notice, one charge of failure to dispose of animal by-products, one charge of failure to produce medical records, and one charge of obstructing an inspector.

Mr Foster pleaded guilty and was fined £850 plus £15 offender levy.
