A cattle society says it has dealt with a row over a woman's naked table-top shed dance at the Royal Welsh Show.

After a two-and-a-half-hour meeting, the Welsh Black Cattle Society (WBCS) said it had ensured it would not happen again.

An employee of Enzo Sauro, owner of Cig Calon Cymru, in Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire, was accused of stripping. She subsequently resigned.

Mr Sauro did not comment as he left the meeting at the Royal Welsh showground.

He has always denied organising the striptease.

Members were reminded that the cattle lines are a platform for cattle husbandry and marketing

It was said to have been witnessed by 150 spectators during a late-night party at this summer's show.

Revellers were celebrating Cig Calon Cymru's new contract with Marks and Spencer to supply Welsh Black Cattle to each of its 16 stores in Wales.

The strip led to the WBCS launching an investigation.

After the meeting at the showground in Llanelwedd, Powys, the society's chief executive Andrew James avoided the subject of what action it decided to take.

He said: "The Welsh Black Society Council has held a regular autumn meeting where the general business of the society was discussed.

"As always this includes a review of the summer show season and the Royal Welsh Show.

"Members were reminded that the cattle lines are a platform for cattle husbandry and marketing.

"The annual show season is the main window on the world for the society and the breed's standing at such events cannot be underestimated." The society declined to comment further.

Les Preston, the honorary secretary of the Welsh Black Breeders Association of England, said: "The issue was discussed... everything was addressed and everything is OK. I have no further comment to make."

Witnesses said the woman was hosed down during her performance with water normally used to wash and feed the cattle.

It was also reported that her act culminated in her throwing her thong to the crowd, before it was handed back to her on the end of a pitchfork.
