The author offers his views on the decline in lamb prices following the foot-and-mouth outbreak caused by a leak from the DEFRA site at Pirbright, Surrey, England. The author suggests the need for the National Sheep Association to coordinate a class action against DEFRA. He emphasizes that the government of Great Britain should pay compensation to sheep farmers in order for them to recover their loss of earnings caused by the leak from the DEFRA site.
