A farmer’s daughter known as the “Cowshed Cinderella” has won £1.3
million ($2.7 million) from her parents for her 30 years of work and
losing out on her young days of freedom.
, 45, was
assured by her parents that she would ultimately take over the thriving
farm and its pedigree milking herd after working for years for free.
But
when a family row broke out they began proceedings to evict her – and
she started a legal battle for her rightful share of the Welsh farm.

Davies won the case against parents Tegwyn, 75, and Mary, 76, and was awarded compensation by the High Court in Cardiff.
She
told a court she missed out on going to Young Farmers’ Club dances with
her two sisters, Enfys and Eleri, as a teenager because she had to stay
at home to do her chores at Caeremlyn Farm, Carmarthenshire.
Her
parents had promised her that her patience and hard work would be
rewarded with the farm and pedigree dairy herd when they retired.
But
although her parents had pinned their hopes on their hardworking
daughter, over the years they became increasingly annoyed by her
relationships with men and the prospect of children, and changed their
wills.
