ABSTRACT
The article reports on the belief by Hilary Benn, secretary of the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, that now is the time to introduce a policy that will remove additional costs from the wallets of British livestock farmers. Benn hopes that this initiative will focus the minds of farmers on the importance of biosecurity he should know only too well that when money's tight, bio-security is compromised.
