The article reports on the restart of slaughtering of over-30-month (OTM) cattle at West Devon Meats, Hatherleigh in England, six weeks after the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) suspended the abattoir's license for labelling irregularities. The lifting of the suspension came as a great relief to farmers who had been faced with poor OTM prices and long journeys to the next nearest OTM abattoir.
