People are desperate for government guidance about fallen stock disposal after the ban on on-farm burial takes effect on May 1, 2003. Despite only 26 days before burial is outlawed, DEFRA has yet to reveal details of a national collection scheme and who will pay for it. EAs the weeks pass, with still no announcement, more livestock producers warn that the extra expense and the hassle of carting dead stock to disposal centres could drive them out of business. Thousands throughout England and Wales face the same problem that could tip their businesses into bankruptcy. Meanwhile, DEFRA dawdling threatens to leave our countryside littered with carcasses. Or to turn a generation of producers into law-breakers by leaving them no option but the use the only practical means of disposal, the spade.
