Appleby Fallen Stock Collection
Farmers in Appleby are held responsible for the disposal of their own fallen stock by law. On-farm burial has been banned in Appleby since 2003 to protect both human and animal health. As you may be aware, Article 21 of the EU Control Regulations says that Appleby fallen stock must be collected, identified and transported without any ‘undue delay’. This means Appleby fallen stock collection must be dealt with as soon as is reasonable and that is where our Appleby Farm Stock Collection service comes in.
