Dyfed-Powys Police says officers were called to the farm on Tuesday morning. Mr Stephens was airlifted to Morriston Hospital, where he later died of his injuries. The local coroner, and the Health and Safety Executive, have been informed.

Fellow farmer Gareth Davies said: 'he will be sadly missed, and my sympathy goes to his family.'
