The article offers information on the German system of cost-sharing livestock management. In the case of notifiable diseases, a statutory compensation scheme refunds the value of livestock, as well as subsequent culling and rendering costs. But costs such as private veterinary fees, cleansing and disinfection and consequential losses are ineligible. The scheme is administered by each province and financed equally by the government and industry through a species-specific levy.
