Sheep farmer Lance Beale is appealing against his conviction for 14 animal welfare offences.
If granted this would be the second appeal brought by Mr Beale, of Wyatts Lake Farm, Westbrook .
He was convicted of 14 of 19 charges brought by Wiltshire County Council Trading Standards by a district judge on June 1 2004.
An appeal against this was upheld by a judge and two magistrates at Salisbury Crown Court on December 29 2005.
The charges relate to a period from November 2000 to the end of January 2001.
The conclusion of the second appeal had brought the total costs of the case, for both prosecution and defence, to more than £250,000.
Judge Keith Cutler sentenced Mr Beale to a conditional discharge for two years, banned him from keeping livestock for ten years and ordered him to pay £10,000 towards the prosecution costs.
The charges Mr Beale was convicted of included causing unnecessary suffering to sheep and lambs.
The prosecution said he did not treat or destroy them after some were attacked by dogs.
The injured sheep included a lamb whose leg was almost torn off.
Mr Beale said he had destroyed the sheep he considered to be the worst cases and said he intended to review the others when he returned to the farm later in the day.
Mr Beale has appealed against the conviction and sentence and a High Court judge is due to rule soon whether the appeal can go ahead.
Mr Beale said he could not talk about the details of the appeal but said he was determined to clear his name.
He said: "It was an erroneous prosecution. It's wrong and I need to see it to the end.
"I want someone else to look at the facts and if they come to the same conclusion I will have to take it on the chin.
"At the moment I don't feel guilty, I feel hard done by."
Mr Beale will seek legal aid if the matter goes to appeal. He said legal aid was not covering preliminary hearings.
He also said: "I'm not proud of the costs but this has to be done."
Mr Beale said a judge in the High Court had agreed to hold over the £10,000 costs order but he had not sought to lift the ban on keeping livestock.
Mr Beale's farm is now producing strawberries, raspberries and asparagus.
