ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the animal health proposal of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for the responsibility and cost-sharing in England. It incorporates a novel body for animal health which will take over animal health policy, and a mandatory registration of livestock keepers. It notes that the British Veterinary Association (BVA) is still considering the significances of the proposal to come up with a clear reaction from the veterinary profession.
