The bull statue in Builth Wells
The bull statue in Builth Wells
The statue is modelled on a prize winning Welsh Black bull. The name of Builth derives from the Welsh Bu Allt meaning 'the wild ox of the wooded slope' and cattle played a significant part in the town's history and economy from Roman times when White Park Cattle were apparently bred locally, later Hereford cattle were important and recently the nearby Royal Welsh Agricultural Show has made the town synonymous with many breed types.
