Gwyn Davies, 74, has been watching the tides on the Dwyryd estuary saltings since he was a young boy.
Ewes must also contend with copper deficiencies - caused by high molybdenum contents of the saltings - and scrap ordnance from the former Cooke's Explosives factory nearby.
After the last spring tide in April, Gwyn and Rhodri will send their ewes and lambs to the saltings, where they will remain for rest of their lives.
It was later called to The Saltings
, where a family of three were reported to be cut off by the incoming tide, although they were not in need of assistance.
She ran the Saltings
Pottery initially with her husband, Tony, until his death in 1984 and then continued alone until two years ago.
Another gimmick HCC are supporting is the feeding of concentrates containing Omega 3 to lambs, hoping they would be worth more, while we have been producing lambs on saltings
, which is naturally very high in Omega 3, for a century without a premium.
It is very unfair on the small number of producers of Saltings Lamb (oen y Glasdraeth) that they (MLC and Mr Don Thomas & Co) are promoting all Welsh lamb on our backs because it is unique in taste and texture.
MADAM - I have purchased and eaten salting Welsh Lamb for over 50 years so I should know what I am talking about
